The necklace of Lady Jane Grey. Intended as a 'coronation' gift from her principle supporter the Duke of Northumberland. However, usurped by Bloody Mary, the 17 year old Jane was incarcerated in The Tower and instead, executed for high treason in 1554. The necklace, (of which this is a copy), was then buried on the estate of her childhood home, Bradgate.
A stunning statement piece for those darkly special evenings.
A Tudor strap-work style statement pewter necklace, centrally featuring a large, rectangular amethyst coloured crystal and with a clear graphite dropper, all suspended by on a split trace chain with strap-work ends set with crystals.
