The "language of flowers" was widely recognized at the court of the Empress Catherine the Great. Bouquets, rings and fans ornamented in a special way could speak volumes about the feelings of a lady or her cavalier. A plum leaf and blossom had a symbolical meaning and gained great popularity in Russia where they were used as romantic emblems. Such rings were worn in pairs - one on each hand. Modern jewelers have copied a famous ring from the Empress' collection which displays all the characteristics of 18th-century Chinese jewelry. This elegant item is adaptable enough to look perfect on the finger of a young girl or a confident lady.
