-BUSINESS INSIDER- BROUGHT TO YOU BY SARA WINTER NIELSENS JEWELERS- - -Business Insider- Brought to you by Sara Winter Nielsens Jewelers- Why give a rose that lasts only a week when you can give a special rose that lasts a lifetime? In the spirit Rose Festival season, we filled our store with roses and are committed to giving back to our community.

We sell real roses, trimmed in 24k gold or platinum, starting at $89.95.

These roses are all real -- the bud, stem, leaves, even the thorns!

Each rose goes through a 40-step process, by hand to carefully preserve, giving you a rose that lasts a lifetime! In the final step each one is trimmed in 24k or platinum. No two roses are ever the same, making each rose one of a kind.

Since the days of ancient times Roses have been rich in symbolism. Inspiring people to develop a language of color. Red= love or respect. Pink= gratitude. Yellow=friendship White=purity. Roses can be given for any special occasion or to remember someone or somewhere special.

Two of the most valuable metals on earth, platinum and gold make the perfect finishing touch to the forever rose.

The Royal Rosarians, "official greeters and ambassadors of goodwill for the city of Portland." Or you might know them as the citizens in white suits and straw hats. They enrich our community, our city of roses. Through their Royal Rosarian Foundation, the Rosarians fund field trips for Portland schools, fund music scholarships and support our prized rose test garden! Through the Rose Festival Season, Nielsen's Jewelers is honored to give back a percentage of every rose sold to the Royal Rosarian Foundation which provides aid to children at risk, scholarships for youth and community spirit.
