Love and romance are often symbolised with flowers, most specifically roses. They're given countless times as romantic gestures, especially around Valentine's Day and for anniversaries. I love receiving flowers but the only trouble is that they don't last forever and I always feel so guilty having to throw them away when they've wilted. While you can press flowers to keep them for years to come, they can often lose their beauty that first took you breath away.
Now you really can give the gift of a rose that can be kept forever with The Eternity Rose. They have combined a stunning rose with pure 24 karat gold in what has to be one of the most luxurious statements of love.
I think that this is a really unique concept and something that I haven't seen done before. They take a real rose and dip it in 24K gold which not only makes it look glamorous and luxurious but it ensures that the rose becomes hard wearing so that it will last for years to come; I think this would be the kind of piece that could end up being passed down through generations. That would be so lovely, especially if there were a beautiful love story attached to it.
For those who prefer a cooler tone, the roses are available in pure silver and platinum finishes and they all come in a gorgeous leather presentation box. They would make an absolutely fabulous gift for a silver wedding anniversary.
For more of a colourful look, another option would be the glazed roses. These come in several different colours and each rose is picked at its peak of perfection. This one is the Pink Natural Rose and after picking, it is glazed and then trimmed with pure 24 karat gold so you're still getting that luxurious look but in more colourful, pretty way.
The Eternity Rose company have really thought of everything as they even have dipped vases so the roses to stand in should you wish to have them out on display.
However what I really love though is their selection of jewellery, which can be purchased alone or together with the roses to match. Again, theres a wide selection of colours and a few different options of earrings depending on the style of the person who you would be buying for. My personal favourite is the heart themed pink rose pendant and earring set; they're so beautiful and unlike anything I've seen before.
If you're buying a present for the woman in your life for their anniversary gift or simply to say 'I Love You' then this is a great website to check out. And girls, if you're reading this, feel free to send it on to your partner with the subject: HINT!
They also offer gifts for men too if you're looking for something unique for a golfer or a card player but for me, the ladies gifts are the real showstoppers!
