A superior antique Art Nouveau styled Edwardian 9ct Gold Peridot and Amethyst pendant. The colours which are associated with the Suffragette movement and the WSPU (Women's Social and Political Union) ; Purple, White & Green. The concept of the colours was devised by Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence, the co-editor of Votes for Women magazine. Purple stood for loyalty and dignity, white for purity and green for hope. The pretty design is one which was very fashionable at the time and romantically based on a naturalistic theme. Hand crafted, cut freehand by a skilled jeweller it is marked to the reverse for '9CT' and set throughout with teeny, tiny seed Pearls.
Measures two inches including the bale.
