Dogwood flowers signify the ability to withstand various challenges in life, among other things. It's a tough little flower and strong for its size. This 14K yellow gold dogwood blossom band is made to last a lifetime, and the antique Old Mine cushion cut Diamond has already proven its mettle. First cut in the mid 1800s, Cole gave it a freshening up before putting it in a handmade bezel and setting it in a new band. The Diamond is a very slight pale yellow with wonderful clarity. VVS clarity means very, very slightly included, the microscopic inclusions so small that they can't be seen with a naked eye.
