Gold-gilded roses: Give the ultimate gift this Valentine’s Day with Sharps Pixley

By Melanie Kruger on 6th February 2016

Flowering on the streets of St James’s are a bed of rose-tinted, gold-gilded roses. Each unique rose is dipped in precious metals, be it rose gold, fine silver or 24 karat gold; that’s gold with a purity of 99.99%, and finer than some of the world’s most sought-after jewellery. This elegant and opulent ornament is the perfect present for someone who already ‘has it all’, and is the ultimate in decadent, romantic Valentine’s gifts.

These everlasting keepsakes are available in 22cm, 30cm and 40cm varieties, and are individually crafted in your chosen metal(NB. Gold prices are £70, £100 and £118 respectively; rose gold prices are to be confirmed (new release); silver prices are £65, £92 and £110 respectively). The creation of each flower is a delicate and intricate process, which begins with skilled German craftsmen selecting only the most perfect natural roses. Next, they are carefully plated in copper and nickel (to retain and stabilise the natural shape of the rose) before being dipped in fine gold or silver to finish. No two are alike – each rose is as perfect and unique as a natural one, but will last for eternity without any danger of wilting.

So whether it’s giving a single gold rose, or the beauty of a bunch – these grand gestures are bound to delight with their effortless elegance. Not only that, but they make an incredibly stylish ornament, to boot – and will remain a symbol of your love for years to come.

Oscar Wild once said; “I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best”. And sometimes, only the best will do – it’s that simple.

These stunning gifts are available exclusively at Sharps Pixley’s new recently opened London at 54 St. James’s Street, London SW1A 1JT and can be purchased over the phone or in store.
