Platinum, Diamond and Amethyst Lavalier Necklace by Morelle Davidson
Throughout centuries people associated colour purple with regality, power and sacredness, therefore it did not take long for amethyst to secure its place adorning religious and royal jewellery. One of the most famous connoisseurs of the gemstone was Russian Empress Catherine the Great, who amassed a considerable collection of amethyst jewellery during her reign. The mineral has also been popular among British monarchs; The Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom feature several amethyst-embellished objects, and the currently-reigning Queen Elizabeth II owns an impressive antique parure known as The Kent Amethysts that originally belonged to her great-great-great-grandmother, the Duchess of Kent.
