This beautiful antique Victorian 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using a stunning antique Victorian swallow piece, crafted in high carat gold and beautifully set with pearls, The bird carries a diamond in its beak and has a ruby eye.


I have coupled the swallow (formerly a brooch), with a beautiful antique 9ct gold interlocking ring chain.  This chain standing out from its counterparts, in the fact that it is heavily faceted to all links giving it an overall interesting textural look and feel with a twinkle thrown in for good measure.  The chain fastens to the back of the neck with a barrel clasp, which has a nice 'snap' to it.


Tip: Always make sure you hear your barrel clasp snap/click into position before removing your hands and wearing.


Swallows were a favourite of the Victorians/Edwardians given as a love token to a sweetheart to signify returning to them.

A classically cool forever heirloom piece. Love love love it forever!!

Approximate Measurements:
Length of Necklace: 19.5 inches
Swallow:  3cm x 2.2cm  

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!
