Nile Queen Nefertiti necklace

Nefertiti was the principal wife of Pharoah Akhenaten- they were known as revolutionaries because they worshipped a single god, Aten, of the sun. Nefertiti was said to particularly love peridot, and sought to wear it in her everyday jewelry as well as her statement jewels.

For centuries, PERIDOT has been a message of cheer to many: from priests (who drank crushed peridot to prolong life) to pirates (who wore the gem as a talisman to ward off nightmares) PERIDOT has been revered as the gem that brightens life. Known to Egyptians as the “gem of the sun” because of its hint of yellow, it was believed to bring warmth and happiness to the wearer.
