Swallows were a common motif in Victorian and Edwardian jewelry symbolic of faithful love and a safe return home.
This gorgeous necklace depicts a glistening golden swallow with ruby eyes with a red enamel heart dangling from its beak. The heart is studded with post set pearls and accented with a diamond.
The swallow was originally a vintage brooch (circa 1940-1960) and the heart dangle, an antique Victorian pin. The entire piece is 14k gold and it is in excellent condition.
The swallow measures 1.9 inches tall by 2 inches wide and the total necklace length (chain plus pendant) is 18 inches.
