Antique rings featuring non heated Burma and Kashmir sapphires can be more coveted than white diamonds, and may bring a greater price! Let's wish the sapphire a "Happy Birthday!"

You may ask yourself what does the Suffragette movement have in common with antique engagement rings, or antique jewelry? Well, that's a great question. Suffragettes were activists in the United Kingdom during the late 1800's, and early 1900's. They were activists who wanted the right for women to vote. The suffragettes adopted the color scheme of pink, violet, white and green: purple symbolized dignity, white purity, and green hope. Women wore these wonderful colors to show their support for this movement. The suffragette flag was made up of white, green and purple! Jewelers during the Victorian time period loved using these colors with gems, like pink sapphires and tourmalines, violet tourmalines and purple amethysts, white zircons, diamonds, aquamarines, and green peridots. These gemstones would reside in rose gold with hallmarks signifying their British origin. Let's thank the leader, and chairwoman of the Suffragette movement, Emmeline Pankhurst, while we enjoy beautiful semiprecious gemstone rings and settings the Suffragettes would love!
