We named this design after Emmeline Pankhurst, a British suffragette, who dedicated her life to the promotion of women's rights through every mean possible. She died 3 weeks before a law giving all women over 21 the right to vote was enacted.
We dedicate this necklace to Emmeline's strength and courage as she paves the way for equal rights. In memory of her efforts, you may even spot her statue in the Victoria Tower Gardens.
This collection is part of our 'Women of Strength' collection inspired by the Vanda Miss Joaquim Orchid, the national flower of Singapore, which was chosen because of its resilience as a species and the ability to bloom all year round. This collection is done in celebration of Singapore's Bicentennial and uses the Orchid as a symbol to represent strength and resilience.
