not exactly what I was expecting. the entire flower appears to be plastic. I have other flowers that are real that were dipped or through electralysis coated with gold however this appears to be injection molded plastic. it looks like the picture.
The rose is pretty cheap an flimsy wasnt impressed . I was under the impression it was a glass rose with a goldbplated stem amagin my surprise when I saw it was like a cheap plastic an had glue strings hanging out all over. But she said she liked it not really sure about that lol . Good thing I had sprung for a bunch of other stuff.
