Victorian 14K Gold, Pearl & Glass Swallow Charm
A lovely little 14 karat gold swallow charm, decorated with two seed pearls on each of its wings, and with a red carved glass eye set into four prongs. This small bird is a favorite of Victorian era jewelry and symbolism; the swallow is known as the bird that mates for life, making this the quintessential symbol of eternal love. The swallow measures approximately 1/2 x 1/2 inch. The delicate charm is stylized and the bird's body is made up of slender lines and curves. In Victorian language pearls were often symbols of tears, also representing tenderness and femininity. This charm is a fine example of Victorian era jewelry. It is ready to hang on a chain of your choice.
