Tyrian Purple Necklace
This is a great necklace for lovers of purples and blues, as I have selected a rustic amethyst teardrop and complimented it with a pair of pale blue lace agate and prehnite rondelles.
The chain is sterling silver, with the beads moving freely along it. Please get in touch if you require a different length than the one shown below.
Tyrian purple is the name of the rich purple dyes extracted since Roman times from some species of sea shells, and was much prized during ancient times because of the difficulty in creating it.
bead sizes: rondelles - 5mm, pendant pendant bead varies from 20-25mm, depending on the individual stone
