What exactly is the hidden meaning behind Selena's 1973 necklace?

According to the artist stylist, Kate Young, the delicate piece — by Sophie Ratner Jewelry — is a reference to the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision in the Roe v. Wade case that established a woman’s right to choose.

You can see her necklace in the picture below:

With every purchase of a necklace 30 percent of the proceeds are donated to the Physicians for Reproductive Health organization, “to help them continue their important work, and improving access to comprehensive reproductive health care, including contraception and abortion, especially for economically disadvantaged patients. "

The founder told Bustle just how important the line of 1973 necklaces are to her.

“Growing up with a mother who is an OBGYN has always shown me the importance of equality in healthcare and particularly with women’s reproductive health,” Ratner told the online publication. “I’ve always believed that everybody should have the choice to make their own decisions about their bodies and more now than ever it is important to fight for this, which is what inspired our 1973 piece and our collaboration with Physicians for Reproductive Health.”
