9.88 Carat Amethyst, 1.25 Carat Emerald, 1.13 Carat Diamond, Gold Pendant

About

A magnificent and impressive 9.88 carat amethyst, 1.25 carat emerald and 1.13 carat diamond 'Suffragette Colors' pendant in 18 karat and 9 karat yellow gold; part of our diverse antique jewelry and estate jewelry collections This large and magnificent antique pendant has been crafted in 18k and 9k yellow gold with silver diamond settings. This authentic (circa 1910) pendant has been modelled in the Belle Epoque ornamented swag and pendant drop style, and incorporates colors* adopted by the women's organisation the 'Women's Social and Political Union' (WSPU), with which the Suffragette Movement was associated. This stunning pendant is ornamented with a feature oval cut natural amethyst bezel set within a border embellished with twenty-two individually set natural emeralds. This setting is supported to the centre of a diamond set tied ribbon and paired leaf garland design accented with a feature step cut, and three round cut natural emeralds. An amethyst and diamond set, articulated pendant drop completes the arrangement. The pierced decorated frame is suspended from a 51cm/20" figaro style, silver neck chain via two integrated loops to the reverse of the feature tied ribbon at the upper border of the design. The chain may be replaced with a chain of similar quality, in style or length to meet your personal requirements. This impressive example of early 1900's gemstone jewelry is fitted to the original red leatherette, hinged presentation case. The velvet and satin lined interior displays the retailer's mark 'C.A. Barrington, Ltd., Diamond Mounter, 30 Thurloe Street, SW7'. This magnificent pendant has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer). The central amethyst and emerald settings verified as 18k gold, the supporting gemstone settings verified as 9ct gold, and the diamond settings, silver. This antique pendant which reflects the green, purple and white colors of the Suffragette Movement is supplied with two independent diamond grading report cards. "Rather than regarding inclusions in coloured stones as harmful, in small sizes and numbers that do not in any way detract from their beauty, they should be regarded as adding to desirability, for they provide identifying characteristics." Reference: The Connoisseur’s Guide to Precious Gemstones, R.Wise, Brunswick House Press. NOTE From late 1908, the WSPU adopted three colors to represent the Union's core moralities: purple - dignity, green - hope and white - purity Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.
