An important and wonderfully historic RIGHTS OF WOMAN intaglio seal necklace pendant with more than a nod to women's history and the suffrage movement.  

The often quoted historic words from the women’s suffrage movement that continue to ring true today … RIGHTS OF WOMAN
Committed to change the world, a progressive group of women believed that women deserved rights afforded only to men … the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness … and so began the woman’s rights movement.  These women and women's organizations not only worked to gain the right to vote, they also worked for economic and political equality and for social reforms.

I've molded a Progressive era (1870-1920) intaglio glass wax seal and had it cast in sterling silver, so it is a replica of the original purple glass seal.  Then I added this special loop borrowed from history to give the silver intaglio seal pendant a unique and timely look.

The original purple glass intaglio wax seal was likely used back in the days of the Suffrage Movement, by suffragettes and supporters and its color purple was selected for a reason: 
In 1908 the colors purple, white and green were adopted as the colors used by the Women’s Social and Political Union in England and purple represented royalty (the royal blood that flows in the veins of every suffragette), the instinct of freedom and dignity.
In 1910 the National Woman’s Party in the United States adopted purple, white and gold to represent their movement, describing purple as the color of loyalty, constancy to purpose and unswerving steadfastness to a cause.

Impressed with history!
