This stunning conversion necklace is made using an original Victorian brooch. Featuring Pearl set Swallows, the Victorians used Swallows to symbolise wanting a loved one to return home safely and Pearls to represent purity and innocence. The two birds are facing inwards with a small dangling Pearl set below their beaks. There is a Gold ball to one end of the pendant, it doesn't appear that there was ever one to the other side.
Made in 9ct Gold with a new 9ct Gold chain attached.
The converted brooch measures 4.6cm in length. We have added our own 9ct gold trace chain which is adjustable and can be worn at either 17 inches or 19 inches, there is a secure hallmarked bolt ring clasp.
Pendant Circa 1900 with a modern vintage style chain.
