Antique Edwardian Suffragette Pendant.
Suffragette jewellery either has direct links to women’s suffrage or pays tribute to the movement. The official colours of the Suffragettes were purple, white and green, and many items of Suffragette jewellery feature peridot, amethyst and diamond.
The move for women to have the vote started around 1897 when Millicent Fawcett founded the National Union of Women’s Suffrage. “Suffrage” means the right to vote and that is what women wanted.
From 1908, the WSPU adopted the colour scheme of purple, white and green: purple symbolised dignity, white purity, and green hope.
This delicate pendant hangs perfectly on a chain. It’s design is subtle in its beauty, with 2 jewels set in the middle and bottom of the piece.
An gorgeous piece that represents an iconic time for the history of women’s right to vote
