Edwardian Green Garnet, Amethyst & Pearl Suffragette Pendant

Edwardian Green Garnet, Amethyst & Pearl Suffragette Pendant

$3,350.00


Description

DATE: Edwardian, c.1910

A breathtaking Edwardian Suffragette pendant paired with a period bar link chain (they came to us together, and it’s possible they always have been). 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. This one’s slightly unusual in that the green is represented by demantoid garnets, as opposed to their much less valuable/desirable peridot cousins. The enhanced quality of the gemstones (the others being amethyst and natural pearls) carries over to the general craftsmanship of the piece as a whole. Crafted in 15 karat gold throughout.
