Description

One of the great pleasures of collecting antique and vintage jewelry is that it comes with a storied past -- sometimes known, sometimes left to the imagination. This marvelous necklace tells the story of American women around the turn of the 20th century fighting for their right to vote. It was a powerful time in our country's history, and these female trailblazers paved the way for many great things to come.
Suffragette jewelry, like the necklace featured in this listing, was worn by women who wished to wear their support for the movement. The colors in this necklace conveyed meaning-- the Green peridot (Give), White pearls (Women), and the Violet amethyst (the Vote).

This necklace, by the renowned Newark, NJ maker Alling & Co., is a true piece of America's history.
This necklace features two square step cut amethyst stones, two pear shaped peridot dangles, and five lustrous natural pearls. It is in outstanding condition. It bears the Alling & Co. mark for 14k gold and weighs 5.8 grams. The chain is 18 inches long and the drop is an additional two inches.
