“ALICE” is one of the most popular pieces we have and, so far, no one named Alice has purchased it. This monogram, from heraldic artist J. Gordon Smith, in his book Monograms in Three and Four Letters, was published in London, England in 1903. The pendant features a 1mm 24k gold orb and green ivy leaves cascading down both sides. It comes with a detachable pavé diamond bail.

In her elegantly furnished bedroom near Chelsea, nineteen-year-old Alice properly sets the final pin in her hair. Thinking back on the previous evening while, at dinner, Alice told Mamma and Papa that she had joined the Suffragette movement and fears they must still be reeling. She feels strongly about the cause and is proud to be given the charge of distributing their special circular in Hyde Park. Taking one final glance at her appearance with pride, she fastens the clasp to the dainty necklace which holds the beautiful monogrammed pendant she received from her parents on the eve of her 16th birthday, and out the door she went.
