ANTIQUE VICTORIAN SUFFRAGETTE 15CT GOLD FLORAL PENDANT CIRCA 1900
This fabulous antique Victorian 15ct Gold Suffragette pendant is Circa 1900.
Emmeline Pankhurst was the leader of the British Suffragette movement in the 19th century and through her efforts won the right for women to vote.
Suffragettes liked to be depicted as feminine, their jewellery was chosen to counter the stereotypes put forward by opponents that they were mannish or shrieking!
The wonderful pendant is adorned with a central green Peridot, a Violet Amethyst Dropper and decorated in lovely cream Pearls.
Green is for Give, white is for Women and violet is for Votes.
The Peridot is a stone of lightness and beauty and was believed to be a stone of springtime by ancients who considered it a gift from Mother Nature.
Amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary powers to stimulate and soothe the mind and emotions.
All set in a beautifully designed Yellow Gold Floral gallery and hallmarked 15ct on the reverse.
Purchased in London and steeped in English history. The pendant would look fabulous displayed on a Gold chain, a great talking piece.
