Its beauty is orchestrated to seduce foremost insects and ultimately man. Orchids have come to symbolize grace, and were universally recognized as the most beautiful and precious of all flowers.

    蘭花存活在地球上已經有八千萬年多,在生態系統的發展史裡可謂功不可沒,一直都扮演著重要的角色。它的美態不只吸引到昆蟲去為它繁衍後代,世紀以來亦令人類為之讚嘆不已。蘭花被視為最美和最珍貴的花種之一,亦是高貴雅氣的象徵。姿色優美,令它成為不少珠寶設計歷久常新的主題,這對可轉換成別針的耳環也不例外。誰想到,原來一個花卉的品種影響的不只是生態環境,而是各式各樣的藝術形式。
