This beautiful antique Victorian 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using a stunning antique Victorian swallow piece, crafted in 18ct gold with clever and beautiful feather detail to the wings with a ruby cabochon eye. The swallow is hallmarked 18ct on the back.
I have coupled the swallow (formerly a brooch), with a lovely antique 9ct gold belcher style link chain. The chain fastens to the back of the neck with an Albert swivel fastener and has the added advantage of being able to be fastened/worn at 2 different lengths.
Swallows were a favourite of the Victorians/Edwardians given as a love token to a sweetheart to signify returning to them.
A classically cool and beautiful forever heirloom piece.
Love love love her forever!!
Length of Necklace: 19.5 inches - Can also be worn at 17.25 inches
Swallow: 4.7cm (w) x 3cm (h)
This is a quirky one-of-a-kind heirloom piece, bringing the wearer an item of jewellery as exclusive and individual as them. The perfect keepsake or gift to celebrate life's milestone occasions or just life!
