World-renowned Finnish Floral Designer Pasi Jokinen-Carter from Flor Unikon, FBCC's dedicated member, creates a dazzling Christmas wreath!
Luxury website VeryFirstTo.com has unveiled the most expensive Christmas wreath studded with 16 Rubies and 32 diamonds totalling over 138 carats that is being sold for £2,835,000!
The 60cm wreath is made up of rare flowers from Finland and once it wilts, the diamonds can be transformed into a bespoke piece of jewellery. "His client portfolio includes the Royal households, country clubs, galleries, and film and TV production houses. Pasi Jokien-Carter has used Laurus, Lingonberry and Blueberry stems sourced from his country house in Finland - as they are not commercially available in the UK."
Speaking about this amazing creation, Pasi Jokinen-Carter said: "I am passionate about my craft and this recent invitation to create an exclusive wreath, using natural materials and diamonds, has been an exciting and exceptional project."
Tobias Kormind, co-owner of 77 Diamonds that provided diamonds and rubies for the wreath, said: "It is exhilarating to participate in curating a selection of gems that would create the most sparkling Christmas anyone could wish for; plus a very worthwhile investment for the future."
Although "the dazzling wreath" is expected to last for only twelve days the stones from it are removable and can be reattached to next year’s wreath, say the creators. "Alternatively, 77 Diamonds is offering the complimentary service of mounting them into a bespoke designed piece of jewellery."
Marcel Knobil founder of VeryFirstTo, who is selling the wreath, said: "We are delighted to be able to offer the world’s most expensive Christmas wreath as part of our ongoing endeavor to offer truly exceptional newly launching luxury products and experiences." More importantly so, a donation of £1,000 from the sale will be made to The Prince’s Trust.
