Suffragette Jewellery

Wearing rubber wristbands , badges , ribbons or pins to show your support to a cause is not new Suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughter Christabel besides bring in home the vote for women with their arson, window smashing and picture slashing, they were also very refined and elegant so adding jewellery to their cause was a natural extension.

The suffragettes’ colour scheme, devised in 1908 by Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence, co-editor of Votes for Women, was an early triumph for fashion branding. Suffragettes wore purple for loyalty and dignity, white for purity, and green for hope. Both Selfridges and Liberty’s sold tricolour-striped ribbon for hats, belts, rosettes and badges, as well as coloured garments, underwear, handbags, shoes, slippers and toilet soap.

So in the hundredth year of the Representation of the People Act 1918 it’s great to see a plethora of Suffragette jewellery
