    If it is significant for you and is consistent with styles you’ve liked for a long time, I don’t think you’ll get tired of it. If it’s something you like because it’s more trendy, I’d be a little more hesitant.

    Fiance and I designed a custom ring with a floral/Celtic design because we know that’s something I will always love. Even though it’s non-traditional and a little unusual (no diamond), I know it’s exactly the ring for me. If you feel sure about this one in that way, then go for it.

    I don’t think that these flower rings will ever go out of style.  It’s very classic. Plus, I find it very romantic to have a flower as an ering. 

    As long as you’re happy with it, I wouldn’t care too much that it is out of style.

    I am sorry Tiffany’s or not, I couldn’t rationalize spending that kind of money on something thats .22 carats. In most cases I would say it isnt about the size but in this case, I couldnt do it.  In terms of a flower ring in general, I like them. I personally am all for something that is different and unique.

    @miss narwhal:  uh… yeah.  Those prices in relation to the TCW are nuts girl!  Besides that, those two don’t actually look like flowers, to me, they look like snowflakes.  Also, you’re going to have a hard time coordinating a wedding band with either of those rings.

    Is your heart set on Tiffanys?

    I did a really quick and dirty google search just to show you what else is out there:

    I don’t know who the maker of these first two are, it was just to illustrate how much more “flower-like” a design could be.

    This is by Ritani from their “Floral” collection

     

    These next few don’t look like flowers from the top, but have floral details instead.

    These are by Blue Nile

     

    This one is by Krikawa, the mount is about $2500.00 and you can put whatever gem you want in there, diamond or other.

     

    Then there’s this one, pretty much the ultimate flower ring EVER.  Sigh.

    I can’t remember who the actual maker of this one is, but it’s come up here on the Bee a few times, and I’m pretty sure Treejewel actually considered it as one of her main contenders for her ering.

    It’s not one of the Tiffany’s rings, but my engagement ring is a rose with a ruby in the center:

    …and almost a year later, I still catch myself gazing at my finger every few minutes. 🙂 I never get tired of looking at my engagement ring, and my wedding band pairs so beautifully with it.

    What about a mix of a solitaire and flower design? I was admiring this yesterday: http://www.ajaffe.com/details.php?title=art-crafted-floral-engagement-ring-me1624&iz=ME1624_B.jpg

    It’s a solitaire but looks like a flower from the top and sides.

    I think that you should get whatever you love. If you love a flower ring then go for it! Personally I am leaning towards getting a classic round solitaire ring in a simple platinum setting for my e-ring because I am an indecisive person and that look will never go out of style. It will always be classic and elegant. If you got something like the ring I linked above, then worst case you could have it re-set if you get sick of the setting. In the other flower rings that you linked, you wouldn’t be able to do much w. them since they’re a cluster of diamonds. You could always switch it to a right hand ring and upgrade the e-ring in 5, 10 years if you get sick of it.

    As someone who’s 32 now, I feel my tastes have changed a bit since mid 20’s even though it was just a short while ago.  I bought a floral rings 5 years ago, and still wear one as a RHR, while the other I cant imagine really getting much use of anymore.  But I only wear it because I already have it.. if I were to buy it again, I dont know that I would.  I also looked at a lot of rings I had collected over the last 10 years, and realized that I wore them for maybe a few years, then got tired of them and just tucked them away… and these were not cheap costume pieces for that purpose.  You said you’ve like it for years and dont see that changing, so only you can make that call. But as an engagement ring, it’ll always be special, so perhaps that would help with not getting tired of it.

    @Rose27:  Thank you! My fiance ordered it from Wexford Jewelers on Etsy – http://www.etsy.com/shop/wexfordjewelers

    They also have their own web site with tons more choices and they take custom orders, too. My finace purchased the Edwardian Rose Solitaire in 14k white gold. Their Rose Collection has tons of other gorgeous engagement rings and wedding sets to choose from.

    Their orders take around 6 weeks to complete, and my fiance says they were wonderful to work with and kept him updated on their progress.

    If you’ve always loved flowers and flower jewelry, I say go for it! You can always talk about purchasing a different ring for your 5 or 10-year anniversary or something if you’re nervous about outgrowing your tastes. 🙂

    @pinkshoes:  I agree, my tastes have changed a lot too in the last few years, and I seem to be gravitating towards solitaires and simpler designs. I have a few flower-inspired pieces too that I haven’t been wearing for awhile… Have you ever thought about having your jewellery reset into different designs pinkshoes?

    If you are concerned about not likeing the flower ring when you get older have you thought about having a custom made enhancer to wear with it to make it look like a fower?  You could always change wraps.
