'New Dawn' Suffragette Ring
Purchase a Piece of British History
Celebrate Women's Suffrage with this attractive hand crafted ring
This attractive ring is exclusive to www.sallylees.com and is decorated with an image inspired by the Parliamentary scrolls on which the Representation of the People Act is written upon and is from the 'New Dawn' jewellery collection commissioned by The Houses of Parliament in 2016 & again for the Voice and Vote exhibition 2018.
Aluminium is printed and dyed by hand in one of the most recognised colours of the women’s suffrage movement. Colours distinguished the many suffrage organisations with Emmiline Pankhurst’s suffragettes sporting purple, green and white. Purple signifies dignify; green - hope, and white - purity.
The aluminium is polished before it is dyed and is completely colourfast. The main band of the ring is forged from sterling silver and is hallmarked by the London Assay office.
The aluminium disks are cleverly connected to the sterling silver ring with a rivet. This ring is a must have for all lovers of history and is very comfortable.
Each ring is unique due to its hand-made nature. The dyed aluminium and hand printed imagery varies from piece to piece giving you a beautifully hand crafted piece of art jewellery to treasure forever.
Complete the look with these stunning stud earrings.
