A popular design used in the Victorian era, swallows were believed to represent love and were also given as a symbol of returning safely to your loved ones. They also represent spring, hope and new beginnings as they return from migration signalling warmer weather and longer days ahead.


The charm/pendant is made from base metal, not gold, and looks to have been lightly gilded to give the look of solid gold. Some of this has now worn away in places. The swallow is highlighted in black, blue and white enamel.


The charm/pendant measures approx 28.7mm in diameter by approx 31.7mm tall (including the jump ring at the top) by approx 1mm deep. The charm weighs approx 5.65g.


Condition - The charm/pendant is in good vintage condition but does show significant signs of age and wear, including surface wear to and loss of the gilding so there are areas where the base metal shows through. There is also surface wear and age to the enamel and some small sections where it has now worn away. The back shows signs of originally having a brooch fitting which has since been removed. The jump ring is currently pushed closed and is made of 9ct gold. Please see photos for more detail.


*Please note the antique box and chain pictured are not included in the sale but the charm will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch.*
