Antique Amethyst, Diamond and Glass Suffragette Pendant, Circa 1913

£4,900.00
XS&AN7219P
A suffragette pendant, with a rose-cut diamond set forget-me-not flower, in the centre, with millegrain edges, on a cabochon-cut, green glass heart, surmounting a faceted, heart shaped amethyst, in a gold, double claw setting, on a natural, seed pearl set, platinum on gold heart, hand pierced to read "ROSEMARY REMEMBRANCE", the natural pearl and rose-cut diamond set bale is attached to the heart shaped pendant with two, short, platinum chains, with natural seed pearls and fine, long, oval fetter links. In a Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Company Ltd. fitted case, addressed 112 Regent Street, London W, by appointment to H.M. the King.

In the language of flowers rosemary symbolised remembrance. In Hamlet, by William Shakespeare, Ophelia said, "There's rosemary, that's for remembrance. Pray you, love, remember." It suggests that this piece was made in memory of Emily Wilding Davison, a suffragette, who was killed on Tattenham Corner, at the Epsom races, on the 8th June 1913. She was thought to have been trying to pin a suffragette ribbon onto the King's horse.
