This stunning antique 15ct Gold Victorian pendant was made representing the Suffragette movement, Circa 1900.

Amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty which has adorned regal jewellery all around the world, from ancient Egypt to the British crown jewels.
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.
The pendant is all set in 15ct Yellow Gold and hallmarked on the reverse.
This is a truly special piece of Suffragette jewellery that would look beautiful displayed on a Gold chain!
