King of Persia:
Want to make a big, bold beautiful statement? Wow! This phenomenal necklace is a feast for the eyes! Stunning freeform purple agate nuggets are the focal point of this eye catching statement necklace. This wonderful Byzantine-inspired color palette of purple, fuchsia, violet and golden bronze makes for a striking, head-turning conversation piece.
The color purple used to be considered a royal color and it was especially revered in the Byzantine Empire where the rulers wore purple robes, used purple ink and their children were considered to be "born in the purple." The Persian King Cyrus wore a purple tunic as his uniform and some Roman emperors forbade their citizens from wearing purple. Purple dye was extremely expensive so naturally it became a symbol of the rich and powerful.
Anyway, the colors in this necklace will make anything pop! This is the kind of statement piece that you will find yourself building your outfit around and it will do all the work for you! Dress it up or down depending on the occasion. And wear it all year round, not just Spring and Summer. In fact, violet is one of Pantone's Colors for this Fall.
