What will the longevity be for my preserved floral keepsake?
Your preserved flower keepsake can be expected to beautifully last for years down the road.

Just how much will my preserved flowers appear like they did when they were fresh?
If you chose to have your preserved flowers encased, they will retain their original shape. Colors may deepen in the preservation process, but they will appear realistic. The variety and color of your flowers also plays a role in slight color changes. White flowers, for instance, can often adopt an ivory or cream-like tone, while purples and reds can darken in the preserved state. If you chose to have your flowers created into preserved flower petal jewelry, then shape is not a factor, but the color will be similar to that of an encased keepsake.
