Although diamond engagement rings among the aristocracy were common from the 15th century and on, a diamond'd engagement wasn't a widespread practice until the Victorian Era. The ever-popular "daisy", a solitaire diamond surrounded by smaller diamonds to represent a flower, has been an evergreen engagement staple. Daisies were associated with loyalty, purity and innocence, the very attributes sought after in a new bride.
Today, this style of ring is not reserved for matrimonial wear only. Cocktail rings and rings intended for the middle or index fingers are often designed in the flower-like shape, and are appropriate to wear for any occasion.
This ring, made of an impressive 1.30 total carats in diamonds, is set in platinum, creates an icy embrace for the central diamond-- the flower thus held in the ice, freezing the beautiful blossom in place, perfectly preserved for your finger!
