"I have never yet met a man or woman who denied that taxation without representation is tyranny. I have never yet seen one who was such a traitor to our form of government that he did not believe that the government rests upon the consent of the governed. This is a government of, for, and by the people, and only the law denies that women are people." - Anne Dallas Dudley, activist in the suffragette movement in Tennessee
18k yellow gold pin and lasso
14k white gold horseshoe
Rose cut diamonds and rubies
Single cultured pearl
This stick pin hails from the Edwardian period, when all things beautiful and carefree were in vogue. Free flowing forms could be found in everyday motifs (such as a simple rope or ribbon) and immortalized in fine jewelry. This was also a time period when horses were much more apart of everyday lives, and horseshoes were a symbol of good luck.
The antique rose cut rubies and diamonds found in this miniature horseshoe capture the light and shadows in an enchanting manner (hard to capture in a photograph, but believe me it is sparkly!). We think this stick pin has the potential to be a beautiful ring or pendant, but we're rooting for people to start wearing stick pins once again!
