If you want to put a slight twist on a traditional engagement ring, a flower ring may be the perfect option for you. This ultra-feminine ring style is elegant, romantic, and timeless—with a slightly vintage look to it that makes them stand out in a crowd. And, if that’s what you’re looking for, you’re in luck: Flower wedding rings are really popular right now, and there are tons of gorgeous options out there.
“Flower rings offer a ton of finger coverage, but the price tag isn’t as hefty because the total carat weight is distributed over all of the stones, as opposed to buying one large solitaire,” jeweler Jillian Sassone says. In other words: You get more bang for your buck and the small stones on the halo or the wedding bands make your ring appear larger than it is. Then there’s the fact that the shape seems to give them a deeper meaning. “Now more than ever, people are searching for meaning in objects,” says jeweler and designer Helen Ficalora. “Flowers speak to the sentimentality of something beautiful and light in a dark world.”

What to Know When Buying a Flower Engagement Ring
There are two different ways to embrace the flower ring trend. You can purchase an engagement ring with a halo around your center stone that looks like a flower or you can purchase a solitaire ring and use one or two wedding bands around that ring to create the look of a flower. Sassone points out that the second option gives you more versatility: You can stack several wedding bands for a unique look or change them out if you want to.
You’ll often find vintage flower engagement rings for sale. “If you’re buying vintage, have a respected jeweler look at the piece of [jewelry and ask]: Is the band in good condition, are all of the prongs still there, any stones loose?” Sassone says. “If you’re creating a vintage-inspired flower ring with a designer, choose someone whose work you love and feel you can trust. It’s such an intimate process, you really want to make sure you feel heard and supported the entire way. In the end, you should have a new heirloom piece that will become part of your family’s history.”
