ANTIQUE EDWARDIAN SUFFRAGETTE NECKLACE SILVER PASTE CIRCA 1910
This fabulous antique Edwardian necklace was made representing the Suffragette movement, Circa 1910. It features a beautiful engraved drop pendant decorated with violet, green, pink and white Paste Stones in a lovely foliate designed gallery.
Suffragettes liked to be depicted as feminine, their jewellery popularly consisted of Violet, Green and White colours which were chosen to counter the stereotypes put forward by opponents that they were mannish or shrieking! Green is for Give, white is for Women and violet is for Votes!
Paste is a heavy, transparent flint glass that simulates the fire and brilliance of gemstones. White Pastes sparkle just like Diamonds and take expert craftsmanship to capture their beauty.
The necklace is all set in Sterling Silver and displays beautiful Edwardian workmanship of its time. It hangs beautifully around the neck and is a great talking piece.
