Red – turns a darker red/burgundy
Cream – turns a darker Cream/beige
Pink – turns a darker shade or lighter dependant on the varieties.
As our paperweights are spherical – any objects as well as flowers, such as jewellery etc. – this will magnify as well as the flowers in all of our paperweights so this should be considered when ordering.

White/cream flowers can turn very slightly transparent.

Small and fragile foliage may become loose in the paperweight.
H) It is at the designer’s discretion as to which foliage we deem most suitable for your paperweight decision.
