Naturens rigdom i sølv og guld
Flora Danica smykkerne skabes på grundlag af blomster, blade, frugter, kviste og græs omhyggeligt udvalgt og plukket i Danmarks skove, haver, på marker og i grøftekanten.
Smykkerne er fremstillet i Sterling sølv og er i henhold til internationale klassifikationer stemplet 925 Sterling. Guld belægningen er en speciel forgyldning, foretaget med 24 karat guld. Hvert smykke gengiver alle naturens fineste detaljer.
Flora Danica smykkerne eksporteres i dag over hele verden inkl. Japan, Australien og USA.

FREDERIKSBORG CASTLE: Frederiksborg castle was built between 1600 and 1620 by King Christian IV. In order to make way for the new renaissance castle, most of an older complex of buildings, which King Frederick II had acquired in 1560, was torn down. The buildings are situated on three islands in the castle lake. On the southernmost island stand the remains of Frederick II's original complex.
The castle is influenced by the traditional style of the Netherlands just like many other of King Christian IV's buildings, for example Rosenborg Castle and the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. It is possible to walk around the castle lake on a footpath.
THE MUSEUM OF APPLIED ART: The Danish Museum of Art & Design is one of Scandinavia’s central exhibition forums for Danish and international industrial design, decorative and applied arts. The museum’s collections, library and archives constitute a central resource centre for the study of design and its history in Denmark. The Danish Museum of Art & Design brings together and documents the contemporary developments within industrial design, decorative and applied arts. We must add to this the collection of exemplary works from older “areas” and periods, which are closely related to contemporary oeuvres. The Danish Museum of Art & Design undertakes research into the history of art and design, taking as its point of departure the museum’s own collections, and presents the results in exhibitions, publications and educational material etc.
