Luxury in all colours, shapes, and materials: a guide to choosing forever roses as a gift

Amaranté London Forever Roses and Dried Flowers

Over the years, giving roses as a gift has become the perfect gesture to express our true feelings and let someone special know we are thinking of them. Amaranté's forever roses are wonderful preserved roses that can remind those who receive them of your emotions for years.

Amaranté offers a rich selection of Fairtrade Forever Roses arranged into high-quality, handcrafted cardboard, suede, or acrylic hatboxes. Each composition is made to order for you, to make for the most luxurious and unique gift, no matter the occasion.

In this article, we will guide you in choosing from our Forever Rose arrangements for your loved ones or yourself, and you will learn about the meaning behind the colours of the roses and the shapes of the hatboxes we offer.

1. Pick a shape and size for your arrangement

Forever Roses in a hatbox are our signature floral arrangement. Amaranté crafts luxurious forever roses (preserved flower) arrangements in classic hatboxes, suede hatboxes, clear acrylic boxes and more.

We handcraft each infinity rose composition to order so that you can customise your unique gift with a personal touch by choosing among a variety of box shapes.

You can pick your preferred box and complete your order by selecting your favourite Forever Rose colour for a unique combination and surprise your loved ones with a thoughtful gift.

We use high-quality handmade hatboxes to perfectly complement our marvellous infinity roses and provide you with a luxurious experience. Our arrangements are available in a square or round shape and come in multiple sizes.

Our forever rose arrangements are currently available in the following sizes:

  • Extra Large Round: 12” x 12” box (30-38 large roses)

The meaning behind the shape

Like colours and numbers, you can select your box shape to communicate different messages and emotions.

When thinking of geometric shapes, straight lines and angles usually symbolise organisation, familiarity, trust and uniformity. Circles and curves, with their softer form, usually represent community, love, unity and perfection.

The square

The square is traditionally considered to represent solidity and stability, as it is impossible to imagine a square shape being easily distorted. For this reason, this shape may feel exceptionally reassuring.

Furthermore, the four sides of the square can symbolise the four cardinal points, the four seasons, the cosmic elements (the sun, the moon, the stars, and planets) or even the four main elements (air, earth, fire, and water).

The circle

Rounded shapes tend to convey a positive emotional message of harmony and protection. The round shape is often used to represent unity, commitment, community or love.

Due to its graceful continuous line, a circle gives a sense of completeness and grace. Being the shape of life-giving elements, like the sun and moon, circles have become symbolic of the life-cycle and have a sacred quality.

2. Pick your box material

Amaranté's packaging is luxurious craftwork available in various materials, including fully recycled and recyclable cardboard, elegant brushed suede, and acrylic. Thanks to our vast selection of materials, you can easily personalise any luxurious forever rose arrangement to all occasions.

Round and square hatboxes are an equally luxurious and environmentally-conscious option, available in a large, medium, small, and single-rose size. Our luxurious hatboxes are designed to help your Preserved Flowers maintain their gorgeous look for as long as three years.

Suede hatboxes

If you prefer, you can opt for our sophisticated round suede boxes, available in three sizes: extra-large, large, and medium.

Suede, from the French phrase gants de Suède, literally "gloves from Sweden" is one of the most elegant materials and will enhance the beauty of your luxurious forever roses.

Acrylic jewellery box

At Amaranté, you can shop luxurious eternal roses in your favourite colour, arranged in high-quality acrylic jewellery boxes. These stunning versatile boxes are perfect for displaying your everlasting flowers and storing jewellery, watches, and other accessories.

Forever rose acrylic jewellery boxes are currently available in clear, black, and white, and are embellished with an elegant satin ribbon.

You can choose from three different sizes:

  • Medium: 8" x 8" box (9 large roses)
  • Small: 8" x 5" box (4 large roses)
  • Single-rose: 3.5" x 3.5" box with one extra-large rose.

3. Choose the right colour for your arrangement

Our handcrafted forever roses hatboxes come in various colours, each of them holding a specific meaning. In fact, colour symbolism can influence people's emotions in different ways.

Choosing the right colour for your forever rose hatbox will give your gift a deep significance and show that you know and deeply care about the person who receives it.

Colours provide a visual expression of our personalities and emotions. In fact, traditions have also created associations of colours, feelings and moods.

Understanding these associations will help you create the most stunning forever rose arrangement.
