A lovely little Victorian seed pearl swallow carrying a tiny diamond on the top of his head with two tiny little ruby eyes. The swallow is set into a crescent of graduated natural seed pearls mounted on a gold open cut basket which sits proud. The whole is set in an 18K Yellow gold frame and is secured with a fully functional pin and rollover clasp.

The brooch is hallmarked 18K just under the clasp in the inside edge of the basket

The brooch has a diameter of 2 1/2 centimetres and weighs 7.5 grams

Symbolism in jewelry is hardly uncommon, yet we often forget the complex language behind it. We use symbols very commonly today in modern jewelry, yet not nearly as intimately as in prior time periods. In present day you will see embellished hearts conveying love, personalized zodiac signs, religious symbols, gender, and cremation jewelry to name a few. But we don't always know where these romantic, magical, spiritual, endearing, audacious, blessed, grieving & gleeful symbols were brought about and represented at their best. In this instance Swallow Birds were a very romantic symbol in antique jewellery, representing faithfulness and wanting your loved one to return home safely ...
