What Does the Flower Symbolise?

Universally, the flower is often considered to represent nature and its beauty with a distinct delicacy and femininity about it. In the Victorian era flowers were given by suitors and lovers to convey subtle emotions and messages. In a similar way we use emojis to communicate on social media, Victorians used flowers to express themselves in a small gesture. This secret language of flowers is coming back in fashion as people become more fascinated with their meanings.

Victorian messages conveyed through flowers include lavender for devotion, marigolds for protection and of course the rose for love and appreciation. Victorian jewellery, especially during the romantic period denotes this preference to floral decoration.

It is thought that even flower colours had special meanings. Have you ever noticed how it is often white flowers often used at formal events such as weddings or christenings? White flowers symbolise both purity and innocence, in the same way wearing white does. Different flowers are often associated with different months too, in a similar way to birthstone rings. For example, if your partner is born in February purple rules her birth month, with her birthstone being purple amethyst and flower as lavender.

What Is the Meaning of Floral Engagement Ring?

A floral engagement ring is distinctively graceful and delicate, although it may pack quite a sparkle. When we say floral engagement rings, we are typically talking about cluster rings with designs emoting ‘petals’ or delicate halo styles but in some cases some rings can have more distinct floral design elements.

Flowers are a universal symbol of affection. Similar to the Victorians, we use flowers to communicate our emotions in the modern day. Whether we are expressing love, gratitude or sympathy, with flowers we are saying ‘I care’, so why not bottle this feeling and immortalise it in a glistening diamond ring?
