Ophrys Bee Orchid Pendant

Regular price$142.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.


This botanical pendant is based on the unusual shape of the Ophrys bee orchid. This wild orchid species has evolved its shape and coloring to mimic a bee pollinating a flower. Although in northern Europe and England the orchid self pollinates and has lost the need to look like a bee, in southern Europe this orchid uses scent and its obvious visual cues to attract bee pollinators. The bees 'mate' with the orchid, collecting and depositing pollen along the way. The Ophrys photo was taken in the Leutra valley near Jena, Germany, a nature preserve rich in orchid diversity.

The pendant is approximately 2 cm (0.79 in) long below the loop and 2.5 cm (1 in) wide.

The pendant is 3D printed in solid sterling silver or 14K gold plated brass, finished with a 45 cm/18 inch long sterling silver or gold plated silver chain, and is ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions.

Emma H.
Gorgeous Product

Brought this, for the pendant, as a gift for my wedding - my husband and I plotted the growth of our local bee orchids - and it is beautiful, just like the flowers themselves. The only pendant like this I could find online. Postage was prompt and the display box and packaging was lovely. Thank you very much, it will be treasured. x

Thank you for your kind review, Emma. It is especially satisfying when something I’ve designed is so meaningful to someone’s life. All the best to you and your husband!
