Have you noticed that diamonds never seem to go out of style? Instead, designers of fine jewelry come up with new ways to wear diamonds, or manufacturers may develop new cuts or shapes, but the core ingredient always stays the same. Most recently, jewelry designers have been using the sparkling gemstone to celebrate the beauty of nature. Diamond jewelry with floral motifs ranging from discrete buds to open blooms is currently very much in fashion. Yellow diamond roses seem to be particularly popular in the jewelry garden, accompanied by bejeweled insects, glittery butterfly wings, and lucky four-leaf clovers. The emphasis is on whimsical nature-inspired designs that celebrate the gemstone that is always in style.

During the 17th century, craftsmen made important technical improvements in gemstone cutting, which enhanced the popularity of gemstone jewelry. With beautiful floral art at its peak during that period, flower designing influenced and became a dominant theme for fine jewelry.
