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 of our jewellery is created by sourcing the highest quality Italian-made beads, and carefully hand-made in Milan. We want the best for you so please see the steps below to best take care of your Pietrasanta jewellery.
The wiring, clasps and studs may tarnish naturally over time - cleaning your jewellery with a lint-free cloth & storing it in a dark spot can avoid this. Avoid contact with perfumes, sprays, cosmetics, creams, humidity and extreme temperatures, as it might damage the resin and metal parts. When travelling with your jewellery, it's a good idea to store it in a rigid box to avoid external pressures from damaging your statement pieces. All of our jewellery comes with a branded pouch and presentation box to help you take the best care of your jewellery.
