Fancy Intense Yellow Diamond & White Diamond Necklace in Platinum
Queen Amina of Nigeria was an inspiring and formidable queen, honoured by Aurelia & Pierre in a necklace as striking as her story.
At the heart of the piece is a 3.0 ct cushion-cut fancy intense yellow diamond. This prized stone is an homage to Amina, the best known of the legendary Hausa queens.
Rare for a woman of her time, Queen Amina took a great interest in warfare. Over a thirty-four year reign her military skill won her a reputation as a fearless warrior.
Set in warm 18K yellow gold, the diamond’s intense yellow colour and fire reflects Amina’s indomitable spirit and bravery.
The intense yellow diamond is surrounded by a halo of white marquise diamonds, suspended from a 16 inch necklace of white, pear-cut diamonds. Both the marquise and pear diamonds are fancy cuts, an elevated touch symbolising just how remarkable Queen Amina’s reign was.
In F colour and VS clarity the beautiful diamonds make an incredible statement, set in platinum and totalling around 9.0 ct.
In Nigeria, Queen Amina reigns still as a feminist icon. Her story inspires women to this day of the potential to shape their social and individual destinies.
