Eternal Rose at Kalidades

The Eternal Rose is a real preserved rose that defies its natural lifespan before it withers. Without any special maintenance, the holder just gets amazed by its beauty for a long period. If the flower set is not watered or exposed to direct sunlight and dust, it could last for more than a year.
It comes in different colors like baby pink, lavender, light green, rainbow palette and many more. Give your loved one something even more special with the Eternal Rose collection at Kalidades SM Seaside City.
