Okay, but look at this 18kt Gold Acorn and Oak Band

An 18kt gold ring beautifully designed with acorns and oakleaves.  Stylized lilies rises upward along the shoulders of the band. Jewels of the Victorian era often incorporated floral motifs to express secret meanings.  Acorns,  lilies and oak leaves represented new beginnings, beauty and commitment. All perfect sentiments for a wedding band!

"Tarun Tahiliani founded his design studio in 1990. His distinctive signature has since evolved as a fusion of textile detail, refined luxury, and meticulous tailoring. The Tarun Tahiliani Design Studio creates couture, diffusion, prêt-a-porte and accessory lines, which are Indian in their sensibility, yet international in their appeal. The rich heritage of the subcontinent is reinvented as contemporary high fashion through the genius of Indian craftsmanship and the finest textiles; along with Italian pattern cutting and construction and new technologies such as digital textile printing. His unique combination of historical opulence and contemporary chic also transcend to couture.” [source]
