Details

A wonderful antique French Suffragette shamrock brooch C. 1900, set with a green teardrop cut Peridot, violet cabochon Amethyst’s and a white Pearl.

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! 

Shamrocks were a popular motif in the Victorian era and have long been a symbol of the Holy Trinity, one leaf for the Father, one for the Son and one for the Holy Spirit. 

The shamrock is modelled in Yellow Gold and stamped with French hallmarks for 18ct Gold on the side of the catch.  

A wonderful piece of history and highly collectable.
