Single Orchid Traditional Pin

$35.00

Description: Traditional stickpin, featuring a filigree cornucopia shaped cone in gold plate, with a single orchid. A removable clutch protects the end of the pin.

Size : Setting 6 cm x 1.5 cm (approx. 2.5″ x 0.5″). Flowers protrude beyond the settings.


Artist’s Comments:

Visually: This very fashionable and modern look created by the prominent use of the orchid contrasts with the somewhat Victorian look of the filigree cone shaped setting. It is ideal for jacket lapels or on heavier fabrics. Great for today’s businesswoman in a suit or a blazer. The feminine touch in a business environment, without overpowering.

Practically: This fitting has the significant benefit of being easy to open and close using the clutch. It has no awkward safety catches and with those whose fingers are not so nimble, or who cannot see tiny detail close up, as needed to fasten the traditional safety catch, these stickpins are far easier to use.

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.
