Edwardian Rose Cut Diamond Swallow Bar Brooch c.1905

SKU: BR089

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.
