Artist’s Comments:

Visually: This is a stunning piece because not only is it so attractive but at the same time it is so very unusual. For this design, smaller flowers are selected to keep it compact. In this particular picture, the ivory orchids are from a mutation whereby the end of the petals, only, have a curled heart shape whereas the petals remain pointed giving such a unique textural and aesthetic effect.

Practically: Because the flowers cover the setting rather fully, the wearer has to be a little more careful on putting it on or removing it, to avoid crushing the orchids. In practice it is not difficult to feel behind them to hold the setting but this is not shown in the picture.

Description

Our studios are strategically located right in the heart of the orchid growing area of The Orchid Isle – the Big Island of Hawaii.

It is here that only the best varieties of our orchids are carefully selected for use in our creations, each undergoing our exclusive and gentle preservative processes.

Our products are unlike any other – made with real flowers they are permanently durable, pliable and practical to wear. They will not dry out, or wilt; if they are dropped, they do not shatter into pieces; each has effectively been turned into a permanent fresh cut flower. While most flowers change color over time, ours will be retained, softening in intensity, developing a patina over time.

We use mostly dendrobium orchids largely due to their suitable size and strength. The greatest influence upon us however, is the wide extent to which this orchid is recognized and in demand by visitors to the Islands.

Our orchid items are not any conventional form of jewelry or accessory. With every flower item sold we provide guidelines on how to maintain them, keep them clean and best stored when not in use. Our orchids should be held by the metal or wooden settings only, not by the flower petals; they should be stored separately and upright in their original box when not being worn.

Important aspects of our guarantee are in our FAQ’s section of the menu.
