Really unusual piece with a very interesting historical interest. It is a chain that is set in eighteen-carat, yellow gold and platinum, and it is set with three different stones: amethyst, pearl and peridot; three unusual colours put together for a specific purpose.
What do they represent? This is known as a piece of suffragette jewellery, made at the beginning of the 20th century for the suffragette movement, looking for equal rights and votes for women.
The pearl (white) represents purity, the Peridot (Green) represents hope, and the amethyst (purple or Violet) represents loyalty.

And though it may be an urban legend, the colours are said to be an acrostic for “Give Women Vote”.
A really unusual piece with some wonderful symbolism to it.
