Of the various ranges in the trademarked Fynbos Collection of engagement and wedding rings designed to resemble local flowers, the Blushing Bride is the most popular flower setting − perhaps owing to its apt name, and the sweet backstory of the fynbos bloom it’s named after.
According to Cape folklore, suitors around Franschhoek, where the Blushing Bride (Serruria florida) is naturally found, would place one of the flowers into their lapel when they went courting. The deeper the shade of pink of the flower, and the deeper their devoted blushed at his proposal, the deeper was his obvious affection for the woman in question.
In this Protea diamond engagement ring, the petal-like setting holds a cushion-cut diamond, rather than a round one. The cushion cut is popular among antique diamond dealers, as it has a traditional, vintage feel. While it may not have as much brilliance as the round cut, it has more fire. Meaning, more chunky rainbow refractions will dance out from the distinctive mosaic cut-outs of this floral engagement ring.
