Here is an antique brooch from the late Edwardian era that looks amazing in both its design and combination of colours – the colours which were also used to represent the suffragette movement.
Made around 1910 by Flavelle Brothers, the brooch is set with a very large central amethyst with four more on the border.
Also on the border are 4 green peridots and 8 pearls which all compliment each other so well.
In 1908 the colours of green, white and purple were adopted by the suffragette group (formed by Emmeline Pankhurst in 1903), the Womenâ€™s Social and Political Union (WSPU) and green represented hope, white represented purity and purple dignity.
These colours work so well together and allow this brooch to be worn against so many colours and always stand out so well.
Flavelle Brothers were jewellers and opticians in both England and Australia and to get any jewellery with its original fitted box is great and to get one that is fully signed on the inside is even better.
The brooch is made in 9ct rose gold and measures 2.6cm across by 2.2mm high and is a stunning brooch that is sure to always be admired and appreciated.
