Catherine of Aragon, one of the inspirations for the Aragon Collection by Scott Mikolay. Loved by all she represented integrity, loyalty, and faith. Katherine came from a long line of monarchs, so Mikolay uses Amethyst and hues of purple to represent royalty. The jewelry represents grace, integrity, and love. Capture the soul of the wearer with the Aragon Collection.
CATHERINE of ARAGON's 24-year marriage to Henry VIII was happy at first, despite being arranged by Henry VII so that he did not lose Katherine's heavy dowry. She was 6 years older than Henry. She had at least 8 pregnancies, most which were stillbirths, including several stillborn sons, and one which lived a month. Henry became dissatisfied with her when she could not bear a son and then began to enter menopause. He got involved with Anne soon after.
Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk, 1st Viscount Lisle KG (c.1484 – 22 August 1545) was the son of Sir William Brandon and Elizabeth Bruyn. Through his third wife Mary Tudor he was brother-in-law to Henry VIII. His father was the standard-bearer of Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond (later King Henry VII) and was slain by Richard III in person at the battle of Bosworth Field. Suffolk died of unknown causes at Guildford.
