This lovely French paste necklace is made of purple, white and green paste. Dating from 1901-1910 is bears the Women's Suffrage movement colors.

Two articulated dangles are attached to the very detailed bow above. The original chain is paperclip style with a pullback spring bolt clasp. It is the perfect length in my opinion and the chain is 18" long. The dangles are slightly different in length. One dangles 2" and the other 1 1/2" not including the bow. All of the paste stones are brilliant in color and have terrific sparkle, much better than photos show. The pastes were carefully collet and bead set, a sign of high end jewelry.

The necklace holds a French double boar's silver mark. Circa 1905, in excellent antique condition with no apologies to be made. I have not polished this necklace as I happen to love original patina. It can be lightly polished if the new owner chooses. A beautiful necklace with pastes that emulate diamonds, peridot and amethyst. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.

**When the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) in England was looking for a color scheme to distinguish their political movement, they chose purple, white, and green. Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence, editor of Votes for Women, a weekly newspaper, explained “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.”
