BR-11D Brooch with crowns - with amethysts
Availability: for order - up to 20 days

A brooch with crowns and gemstones – a replica based on the extant example from Musée de Cluny 1300-1400

The brooch is hexagonal with six circles separated with finials, into which we have set cabochons 3mm in diameter. The circles with concave sides are topped with crowns that contrast starkly with the blackened background of the brooch’s base.

Size: inner diameter: 2,4 cm, external diameter: 6cm

Cast brass.

Gemstones are embedded, not glued.


Amethyst – a mineral, transparent variety of silicon dioxide (SiO2) with purple hue. Its name derives from Greek and means “sober” (a – not, methystos – drunk); ancient Greeks believed that drinking wine from amethyst cups protected the drinker from intoxication.

In Middle Ages amethysts because of their mythical powers were used as amulets protecting mighty knights. They were kept in boxes padded with swallow’s feathers. They warded against not only drinking, but also from a curse, hailstones and locust. They protected soldiers from wounds and betrayal and guided the sailors safely home. Ground amethyst powder was used as a medicine.


We offer a wide selection of natural gems: garnets, amethysts, dark blue and blue agates, reds carnelians, rhinestones, green and yellow agates.

Soon we will present our new “Brooch with crowns” made from silver and set with emeralds and sapphires.
