Antique Swallow Brooch Bar Pin
The Victorians loved symbolism and expressed their love and devotion through secret messages with their jewelry. This charming antique swallow brooch is a perfect example of that symbolism. Known to mate for life the swallow symbolized everlasting love.
This 10k rose gold bar pin was designed with a multi color gold bird, a curl of flat wire and a buttercup prong set faceted clear glass stone.
The open C style catch has a nice feature with the end of the C extending with a curled wire that helps keep the pinstem in place better that a standard on catch.
The brooch measures 2 inches long.
The clear faceted glass does have some small chips that are not obvious to the naked eye.
There are no makers marks or karat mark but this piece has been tested and guaranteed to be 10k gold.
