Product information "WOMEN POWER"

The history of equal rights for women and men has been a very tough battle throughout history.  

The years of the early 1920s were a particularly moving period in this gender struggle. 

Women around the world took to the streets in large numbers to finally demand more rights  and, above all, the right to vote for women. 

The term "suffragettes" originated in Great Britain and referred to precisely this movement. 

It is derived from the French word "suffrage", which translates as "vote". 

More and more women publicly declared their support for this women's movement and a real fashion emerged with certain color schemes.

GREEN, WHITE and PURPLE were officially adopted as the colors of the women's movement in 1908. 

These colors stand for hope, purity and dignity.Here we discover such a piece of jewelry from this period, crafted in 9 carat yellow gold. 

The colors of the antique pendant look spring-like and fresh. 

The pendant is set with white freshwater pearls, green peridot and violet amethyst.

This rare and antique pendant dates from the turn of the century around 1900.

Due to the exquisite materials, the pendant is of fine quality. 

The pendant is crafted in 9-karat yellow gold and the matching later cord chain is crafted in 14-karat yellow gold.

The peridot gemstone was also one of the most popular gemstones in England at this time  around the turn of the century.

It has a teardrop shape and rounds off the pendant as a suffragette piece of jewelry. 

A wonderful piece of jewelry from around 1900.
