|How to impress Mother Nature Gemstone sculptors create “forever flower” in carved amethyst I promised her a flower that she had never seen before. They told me there was only one place to get it in Rio. I’d heard one man’s name mentioned in hushed, reverent tones throughout the city: O Florista — “The Florist.” I can’t tell you how I got his address, but I can tell you what I saw. A garden bursting with color, hiding a small studio at its center. Inside, I found the old man hard at work. Cradled in his hands was his latest, luxurious creation: a perfect purple flower with sparkling petals of carved amethyst. It was a flower, but not in the traditional sense. Why did he do it? “Flowers last only a few days,” he explained. “But this beauty will last forever.” His work provided me with the inspiration to grow a garden of my own. Our elegant Florista Carved Amethyst Necklace and Earrings Set recreates all the elegant natural detail of a blooming flower. This set features amethyst expertly sculpted into vivid violet petals, with a center of multi-colored sapphires set in 14K gold-fused sterling silver. Deliver a full bouquet of beautiful purple gems that are guaranteed to last a lifetime.
