Suffragette Jewellery first appeared in the 1890s when it was worn by campaigners for women’s right to vote. It was produced until 1918, when the first women were enfranchised. Suffragette jewellery is primarily made with green, white and violet stones, signifying “give women votes”. The stones have further meanings: green stood for hope, white for purity and violet for dignity. They might have looked like pretty pieces of jewellery, but the pieces were the expression of a desire to overturn the established mores of a society. Interest in suffragette jewellery has increased recently and prices have risen quickly. A 2004 television film about American suffragettes, Iron Jawed Angels, has boosted awareness further. This pretty Art Nouveau 9ct Gold Pendant is set with a Peridot, Seed Pearls and Amethysts with the original 9ct Gold chain. Take charge of your destiny and splash out on this gorgeous and collectable piece of history! Excellent condition. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED.
