The latest Kovel Collection orchid flower design from the hands of Dr. Kovel is the beautiful lady’s slipper. This orchid genus Paphiopedilum pronounced paff-ee-oh-ped-di-lum (paff for short) is captured nicely in the new pendant, earring and brooch offerings in opal inlaid silver with gemstone/diamond or gold accent.
The range of the Kovel Collection flower family continues to expand as their flower garden of designs grows with ever more orchid varieties.
The name lady’s slipper is given because of the unusual shape of the pouch-like labellum of the flower which traps insects seeking nectar. These spectacular and brilliantly colored delicate “Paff” orchid blooms are considered highly collectible by orchid fanciers. They are native to the Pacific Islands, Southeast Asia and India,
These reasonably priced designs showcase Kovel’s exacting attention to detail in reproducing the beauty of the orchids character.
