Floral bracelets or corsages are ideal for prom nights, masquerade balls, and parties. You might have seen countless rom-com movies where the male lead brings a floral corsage for the female lead.

Birthdays. They are perfect to convey your love and care, making them the perfect floral jewelry.
While we always recommend using fresh flowers, nowadays, many people can be seen wearing preserved or dried flowers. Dried flowers can be more delicate than fresh flowers, which is the reason why people prefer to preserve them using a resin mixture.
Whatever you choose, remember to always store your floral jewelry in a cold environment in separate boxes, or it might lose its freshness soon. Use it within a day or two to prevent the jewelry from losing its vibrant color.
