Nature-Inspired Engagement Rings
By L. K. on Jul 6, 2015 at 4:00 am in
A diamond might be forever, but a traditional solitaire sparkler isn’t for every bride-to-be. Branch away from the boringly basic by channeling the great outdoors with an earthy engagement ring that reflects elements and textures of the natural world—think vines, leaves, petals, twigs, wheat, and water. From the elegantly rough-hewn to the whimsically wild, there’s an organic design to fit every nature lover’s fancy. Here we share some of our favorites.
This classic and much-coveted Cathy Waterman ring features an emerald-cut aquamarine stone set in diamond-studded prongs whose sparkling vines calls to mind an enchanted forest.
Starring a pear-shaped moissanite stone, this earthily elegant ring is made from an organic twig cast in recycled 14-karat white gold.
Featuring a natural green emerald framed by gold leaves, this ring is fit for a sylvan siren.
This moodily fanciful ring features a rustic honey-colored diamond set in blackened gold prongs and flanked by diamonded leaves resting on a textured bark band.
At once glamorous and organic, this flower-inspired dazzler consists of a bezel-set white diamond surrounded by a halo of diamond petals. Its daintily branchy rose-gold band is sprinkled with tiny dew-like accent diamonds.
A brilliant-cut (and conflict-free) round diamond is framed by tiny yellow-gold flowers, inspired by hydrangea blossoms, in this lovely ring.
This rose-cut diamond trilogy ring was made for the romantic minimalist who prefers simple over showy.
The roughness of this raw diamond ring is balanced by the stone’s grayed blush hue, which gives the piece a soft edge.
Cast from a found tree branch, this one-of-a-kind ring features a sage-green pear-shaped diamond set on a handcrafted band made from recycled yellow gold.
Equal parts pretty and mysterious, this delicate and shimmery moonstone ring looks like something from a book of fairy tales. The ribbed yellow-gold band is made by hand.
Made entirely out of rose gold, this little vine-and-leaf charmer makes a strong case for stone-free engagement rings. `
This texturally intriguing ring features a beautifully rough white diamond set in handcrafted white-gold prongs. The band is cast from an actual tree branch, retaining its distinct nodes and grooves.
