Back in 1903, English suffragette Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence proposed the use of colors to represent the women’s suffrage movement. She chose three colors to symbolize the ideals of the cause: green for hope, white for purity, and violet for dignity. Put the first letters of the colors together, and you also have an acronym for “Give Women the Vote.” The colors proved popular, and women in both England and America began using them in sashes, clothing, and, yes, jewelry.
