‘Glory’ in the secret code for the evergreen laurel. In the 19th century ‘Language of Flowers’, the wearing and giving of flowers and foliage would convey their meanings for those who knew the code. Laurel nobilis is also known as the bay tree or sweet bay, the very same aromatic plant used for centuries for its unique fragrant qualities. I

We are celebrating the vintage symbolism of the laurel with unique hand engraved wedding rings and engagements rings. Choose any of the designs in yellow gold, the same metal as used in ancient times, or in high quality platinum 950. To match an existing ring, you may want to consider either 18ct white gold or the fashionable 18ct rose gold.
For men’s wedding rings, you can choose palladium for your metal. This is one of the newest metals in use for jewellery today. Contact us to select the metal of your choice. Visit our Laurel Rings page to see the collection.Credits: Gyan Gurung Photography Oh Wonder Calligraphy
