Our Forever Roses by JC Sipe start as a real rose that is grown in the USA. At the peak of its beauty, each 12” rose is hand selected for its shape and color. The original 24K Gold Rose is preserved & electroplated in pure 24kt. gold. Thru a unique process, we now offer the rose in Platinum or Rose Gold. For the Lacquered Rose the entire blossom is taken apart so that each petal can be lacquered and trimmed in 24 karat gold or platinum. The Birth-Month Rose which reflects the birthstone color for each of the twelve months of the year also starts as a real natural rose. Through a unique process, the original color of the rose is altered to reflect the color of the birthstones. Each rose is presented in a beautiful gift box with a gold embossed card that warranties its origin as a real rose. Also available is a black or clear handcrafted bud vase to beautifully display your rose.
