N441 - AMETHYST ROYALE
MATERIALS: Faceted and Chiseled Amethyst Nuggets
SIZE: 16” Long with a 4” Extender
I know. It looks big. And it is. It is grand. BUT! It’s not heavy because it’s well balanced and almost seems to float when you wear it. Everyone who has tried one of these on (I've only been able to find enough stones to make three, and each is totally different.) says that it is one of the most exciting necklaces they have ever worn.
I purchased a small cache of these stones from one of the world's most well-guarded secret stone cutter/dealers. He only deals with the most magnificent and exotic stones. Forget diamonds and rubies. If they're not out of the ordinary and jaw dropping, he won't even deign to look at them.
Amethyst has served as a symbol for royalty, adorning jewelry and thrones of powerful monarchs. Some believe it is a stone with great healing and meditative powers, a purifier of mind, body and spirit.
The origin of the name is founded in Greek mythology. Dionysus, the god of wine, angrily unleashed his fury upon a young maiden named Amethyst. The goddess Diana transformed her into a glimmering pure white stone to protect her. Moved with pity, Dionysus began to weep with sorrow. His wine infused tears dripped onto the stone, which absorbed the color, creating Amethyst.
You’ll almost weep with joy when you wear this elegant piece. A glass of Champagne in your hand would also add to the aura.
You are about to acquire a unique piece of art. The stones were mined by hand and shaped individually by skilled artisans. Every stone is different. The color and texture will vary from stone to stone depending on which mine or source they were derived from. Being one-of-a-kind pieces they will not exactly match each other or the pictures on the site. I try to balance stones as much as possible sorted by color and size. I hope that you will enjoy their individuality and their handcrafted qualities.
