Victorian suffragette 9K almandine garnet, emerald, and seed pearl ring. This stunning Victorian ring is made of solid 9K gold. This is a suffragette cluster ring bearing all the typical colours of red, green, and whit. The ring is claw set with 3 central lustrous seed pearls. These are flanked by 4 genuine almandine garnets and 2 genuine emeralds gemstones. The upper region of the shank is beautifully made, scalloped, and bears ornate fine detail engraving to it's outer surface. The lower region of the band is fully engraved too around it's entire outer perimeter. There is a full crisp Birmingham 9ct gold assay hallmark for the year 1877 on the inside circumference of the shank. The ring has beautiful genuine gemstones and a hallmark to authenticate its year of manufacture.
Note: Red (almandine garnet) stands for the blood that flows in the veins of every suffragette, the instinct of freedom and dignity; white (seed pearls) stands for purity in private and public life; green (emerald) is the colour of hope and the emblem of spring. Summarizing, the colours stand for freedom and dignity, purity and hope. Green, white and red became the popularly recognized colours of the Women's Social and Political Union... the Suffragettes.
