Description

DATE: Art Nouveau, c.1910

Stunning Art Nouveau Suffragette necklace dating from the early 20th century. The colours, Green, White and Violet, are said to have been a hidden expression of allegiance with the Suffragette movement, they spell out, treated acrostically, Give Women Votes. In this case, the stones are peridot (G), pearl (W), and topaz (V), the former two set in three five-petal flower clusters, with leaves dangling beneath set with topaz and peridot. Beautiful doesn't really do it justice, the design is impeccable and the execution tending towards perfection. The three pendants are set on a fine 15 karat box link chain. Offered in the original fitted presentation box branded Dykes Brothers of Glasgow.
