Details

This fabulous Sterling Silver Suffragette genuine collar and cross pendant is all original.


The cross detaches to reveal a wonderful collar that is set with old cut Paste stones.


This Sterling Silver collar and cross is set with white green and pink Paste stones that represent the Suffragette movement.


Paste is a heavy, very transparent flint glass that stimulates the fire and brilliance of gemstones because it has relatively high indices of refraction and strong dispersion, the Romans in particular were very skilful in the production of coloured glass pastes.


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!


Give Women Votes


Green is for give, white is for women and violet is for votes.


The cross detaches from the collar so it can be worn with our without.


This looks stunning when worn, it is such a statement piece!


It weighs 40 grams.


The necklace measures 15 inches in length.


The cross measures 35mm across x 60mm down


In excellent condition all round.
