A deep, richly colored amethyst weighing approximately 18 carats centers this historical antique brooch. An Edwardian work of jeweled art, the brooch was worn by a British Suffragette to show her support for the movement. The official colors of the women's suffrage movement were green, white and violet, representing the words "give", "women", "votes". In this stunning brooch, the colors are represented by the grand amethyst surrounded by elegant white pearls and two flanking emeralds. Wearing the colors of the movement was the primary way of displaying support, but elegant pieces of suffragette jewelry were a rare show of solidarity, making this brooch both beautiful and deeply symbolic.
