Edwardian Rose Cut Diamond Swallow Bar Brooch c.1905
This beautiful brooch depicts a swallow in flight and is set with rosecut diamonds in silver and gold. The swallow was seen as a symbol of enduring love and loyalty and was a popular subject in jewellery during the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The bird is set on a knife-edge bar with a pearl terminal to one end, allowing the edge of the brooch to disappear when worn showing only the swallow and the pearl. The brooch has a handmade safety clasp to the reverse and the swallow could be converted to a pendant if required.
