Dissent collar necklaces honoring Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and female successors like Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson. “The standard robe is made for a man because it has a place for the shirt to show, and the tie,” Ginsburg was quoted saying in 2009 by the Washington Post. She and Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman Supreme Court justice, “thought it would be appropriate if we included as part of our robe something typical of a woman,” Ginsburg said. So they began wearing lacy jabots and later, Justice Ginsburg acquired a large collection of various styles of collars made of beads, lace, pearls, and metals.

Collar pendants are stamped on the back with quotes from RBG.

"I dissent." pendant measures 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" and is strung on an 18" long sterling silver chain. (Quote reference: "So that's the dissenter's hope. That they are writing not for today, but for tomorrow.")

"When there are nine." pendant is 2" x 1 1/2" with bail and is strung on a 20" sterling silver chain. (Quote reference: "When I'm sometimes asked 'When will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court]?' and I say 'When there are nine,' people are shocked. But there'd been nine men, and nobody's ever raised a question about that." -RBG)

"Reading shaped my dreams." pendant is 2 1/4" x 1 7/8" with bail and is strung on a 24" sterling silver chain. 



Inlaid glass beads and polychrome grout in precious metals.

Care Instructions

After wearing, wipe jewelry with a clean, soft cloth to remove oils and light tarnish. Periodically, you may clean the jewelry with mild soap, cool water and a soft bristle brush, but do not immerse in water. Do not wear micro-mosaics while swimming or showering. The metal portions may be cleaned with a polishing cloth impregnated with polishing compound, being careful not to get the compound on the micro-mosaics as it may discolor them.
