This is not only a delightful little antique brooch. Made in the shape of a Swallow bird in flight, the brooch is entirely made up of tiny split seed pearls pave set into a 14 KT yellow gold base. His eye is a tiny pink coloured cabochon ruby. The wings are spread open behind him, with his forked tail slightly raised as if controlling the direction of flight. It is exquisite!
The brooch measures 1 1/2 inches x 1 inch
The brooch is hallmarked for 14KT gold and also has a hook so that the brooch could be worn as a pendant.
The brooch is secured by a pin and C clasp that has a small hook to prevent the pin slipping out.
sold in immaculate condition with original stones and settings.
