BC + Flora the Original Love Story

Engagement rings inspired by our original love story. And like B.C. + Flora’s story, these iconic pieces stand the test of time. Classic beauty and passionate brilliance worthy of a lifetime together.

As Benton Clyde settled into Purcell to start his dream of opening a jewelry store in 1892, he met a young woman named Flora Edwards, who ran Purcell’s post office. Out of their initial meeting, Flora loaned B.C. a dollar and a stamp when he didn’t have anything. Right away, B.C. was smitten. He took every opportunity to visit Flora. As rumor would have it, B.C. would “check the mail” multiple times a day even though the mail train only came once. This first chance encounter blossomed into a beautiful friendship, 2-year courtship, and a timeless love story that lasted 69 years.

We looked to their love story for inspiration, as we created this collection with exceptional quality and extreme detail.

A letter to Flora from BC Clark
Dear Flora Edwards,

May I have the exquisite pleasure of accompanying you to church Sunday night April 22, 1894.

Very Respectfully, B.C. Clark 

PS:  If it meets with your approbation, I will call early and stay late.

The BC + Flora collection takes on classic and timeless pieces for everyone at any age. There are many modern styles in our collection, like the popular oval cut with a thin band.

This Modern Aire Emerald Cut Solitaire Engagement Ring in White Gold is paired with a Classic Diamond Yellow Gold Band. This goes well with the Mens 4mm Wedding Band in Yellow Gold. Mixing metals are becoming a trend in jewelry and this is a perfect example of how well they pair with each other. White Gold engagement rings are ideal because they are normally alloyed with stronger metals than yellow gold, so it’s more scratch-resistant and durable. Aesthetically speaking, white gold easily matches with a wide array of other colored gemstones, especially diamonds. Gives it much more of that sparkle you are looking for.

The Petite Twist Shank Engagement Ring paired with the Comfort Fit Shared Prong Diamond Eternity Band. This unique engagement ring has a twisted band that gives it something special and different look from a classic band. A set that matches well with the women’s engagement ring and wedding band is this BC + Flora Men’s 5mm Brushed Wedding Band.

From emerald to oval we have the cuts and shapes you’ve been dreaming of.

Our Legacy. Your Story.
