An electric purple necklace, mimicking amethyst crystals - Lovingly hand-made in Italy.
The name of this necklace pays homage to Franca Viola who was the first woman in Italy to refuse a 'rehabilitation marriage' following a sexual assault in 1965, which would have negated the perpetrator’s crime. Instead she chose to press charges and succeeded in prosecuting him. Her courage and resilience led to a subsequent change in legislation. Viola has since become a symbol of social progress and the emancipation of women in post-war Italy.
Hand-made, in Italy.

All Pietrasanta jewellery is completely hypoallergenic – it’s free from lead, copper and nickel, so that you can wear it all day long without any issues.
The jewellery may be: plated in gold; silver 925, galvanized gold or galvanized silver – we would recommend the following steps to ensure your items are not damaged and stay clean. The wiring, clasps and studs may tarnish naturally over time. Tarnishing occurs naturally and to avoid this you may use a lint-free cloth to clean the metals parts of your jewellery. Similarly, as certain parts may bend under pressure, we suggest that the items be stored and transported in rigid boxes to avoid any external pressure compromising the item. If the jewellery does not ‘fall’ as expected, remember not to press down on the item, but try to gently align the pieces to their intended state.
