Swallows were a common motif in Victorian and Edwardian jewelry symbolic of faithful love and a safe return home.
This unique gold nugget swallow necklace glistens from every angle. The piece is solid 14k gold with a pure gold nugget textured surface. It has a diamond eye and dangling pink sapphire briolette.
The swallow was originally a vintage brooch (circa 1920-1940) that our jeweler transformed by removing the pin findings, expertly welding a hidden 14k gold bail beneath the top wing, and adding the sapphire beneath the beak.
A delightful piece, the pendant measures 1.8 inches wide by 1.1 inches tall and we are providing the option to purchase the piece with or without the lengthy 21 inch gold chain depicted in the photos.
Materials: Sapphire, Gold.
