We think that, based on the utilized colours, this bracelet, of pre 1930 make, is a direct, though somewhat veiled, expression of Irish patriotism. The Green Tourmalines signifying the Gaelic and Anglo Norman origin of the peoples of Ireland. The Orange of the 15 ct old/red Gold signifying the Protestant origin & supporters of William of Orange. The White of the Seed Pearls signifying the lasting truce between the Orange and the Green.
