Frederick Sander was one of the most distinguished collectors of the Victorian era. But he didn’t have much interest in acquiring rare artifacts, fine art or even precious gemstones. His obsession was flowers. During the late 19th century, the British nurseryman dispatched botanist-adventurers to all corners of the globe in search of rare blooms. At the top of that list? Spectacular orchids from Thailand and neighboring islands of the South Pacific.
This natural Thai Orchid Necklace begins with a natural dendrobium orchid. The flower is finished with 24K gold through a process called electroforming and finished with several layers of hand-painted enamel to reveal the bold, natural colors of the Thai blossom. Each natural orchid pendant hangs elegantly from an adjustable 31 ½" gold-finished chain. Because real flowers are used, the look of each pendant will vary in shape, size and color. Unlike cut flowers that eventually wilt, the Thai Orchid Necklace will retain its vibrant and natural splendor for years to come. Everlasting floral luxury with no green thumb required!
