The Florin Leaf was designed by Frederick William Kolde circa 1913, in the Edwardian Era. The “Florin” name stems from the design’s resemblance to the scrolls found in Renaissance era architecture in Florence, Italy, and for the quatrefoil design.
Our Florin Leaf engagement ring features delicate scrolled filigree open-work and hand-engraved floral detailing. It’s accented with bead-set diamonds and a milgrain edge.
The geometric filigree in the center is modeled after quatrefoil designs from cathedrals in Florence, as you can see in the photo below. Look under the center stone to see the quatrefoil design.
The engraving down the sides of the ring is reminiscent of Renaissance floral designs found on the capitals of columns, which you can see in this photo.
The total carat weight (without the center stone) is 0.24 ctw. The Florin leaf is available in all finger sizes. Locate an authorized retailer today to see this beautiful ring for yourself.

Do you love having flowers in your home? You can have flowers with you all the time with our Edwardian Blossom ring on your finger.
This ring was designed in 1909 by Frederick William Kolde in response to the emergence of lavish gardens and indoor floral arrangements of the Edwardian Era.
The Edwardian Era is known for featuring floral motifs and patterns in clothing, furniture, jewelry and home design. While most of this ring design features the floral motif, Edwardian Blossom also is engraved with subtle scrolls and milgrain accents. The floral design is crafted in a traditional Edwardian Era leaf and flower-like pattern.

What is a filigree engagement ring?
Filigree is: "a delicate kind of jewelry metalwork, usually of gold and silver, made with tiny beads or twisted threads, or both in combination, soldered together or to the surface of an object of the same metal and arranged in artistic motifs."
Apply this concept to an engagement ring, and there you have it! But really it is not that simple.
In order to produce a filigree style engagement ring, it takes a lot more than adding twisted threads or bead work to a ring, it takes a special design and understanding of jewelry construction. Being a manufacturer of select styles sold in a catalog, we have had to engineer all of our rings to stand up to normal wear and tear, and not be weakened by the open work...Read more
