Antique Victorian Gold Suffragette Pendant, circa 1900

About

To read more please click continue reading below- This fabulous antique 9ct Yellow Gold Suffragette Pendant is genuine Victorian, Circa 1900. Suffragettes liked to be depicted as feminine, their jewellery was chosen to counter the stereotypes put forward by opponents that they were mannish or shrieking! The beautiful pendant is adorned with a central Violet Amethyst, a green Peridot dropper and decorated with Pearls. Green is for Give, white is for Women and violet is for Votes. The Peridot is a stone of lightness and beauty and was believed to be a stone of springtime by ancients who considered it a gift from Mother Nature. Amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary powers to stimulate and soothe the mind and emotions. The pendant is also decorated in 9ct Gold Forget me nots cushioned with Pearls. -Forget-me-not, O Lord!- is what a poor German knight shouted as he fell into a river. He and his lady were picking flowers by the side of the river at the time, no doubt enjoying the beautiful day around them, and yet as fate would have it, the knight's armour dragged him down to the bottom as he fell in.  Upon his cries to the Lord, he threw the blue posy of flowers to his loved one and promptly drowned. This little tale reportedly dates to around the 15th century, but no doubt had different permeations along the way, as romantic stories often do. Hence, the concept of remembrance, eternal love and faithfulness grow from this. The pendant was purchased in London and steeped in English history. Looks fabulous when worn, a great talking piece. Weighs 3.4 grams. Measures 26mm across x 37mm down. Excellent condition.
