ANTIQUE EDWARDIAN SUFFRAGETTE BANGLE AMETHYST 9CT GOLD CIRCA 1910
This stunning antique Edwardian bangle was made representing the Suffragette movement, Circa 1910. The wonderful bangle is adorned with a large violet 6ct Amethyst in the centre and accompanied by two green Cabochon Peridots and lovely cream Pearls.
