This Edwardian necklace features the suffragette colors of green, white, and purple using peridot, seed pearls, and amethyst. The colors of the movement were described by Emmeline Parkhurst, the founder (along with her daughters) of the Women's Social and Political Union as: "Purple as everyone knows is the royal color. It stands for the royal blood that flows in the veins of every suffragette, the instinct of freedom and dignity...white stands for purity in private and public life...green is the color of hope and the emblem of spring." The slogan of the WSPU was "Votes for Women". When purple is interpreted as violet, the colors ordered in the sequence of green, white, violet form the acronym GWV for "Give Women Votes". This stunning necklace features an open floral design set with peridot and framed in pearls with a large amethyst drop flanked by pearl-studded scrolls.
