Grace leis are suitable for men and women to wear. We used orchid flowers and fold each in an outward manner to bring out the beauty of the bloom. This is a lei for all occasions. Grace leis can be worn as a graduation lei or for any event. This is a full lei at about thirty eight inches around. The width is just under three inched. The lei is made with purple and white dendrobium orchids. This is a durable lei and will last a few days if refrigerated between wearings.
