Edwardian 15ct Gold, Seed Pearl, double Swallow bar brooch

Edwardian 15ct Gold, Seed Pearl, double Swallow bar brooch

A romantic brooch/tie pin featuring a pair of swallows mounted on a gold bar. The swallows are mounted with fourteen tiny seed pearls.
Complete with safety pin style fitting.

Swallows were a popular motif used in Victorian times and were often given as a token of love, often from some-one who was travelling or going to war. The swallow is the first bird that is seen from a ship as it returns to land.
The swallow represents a loved one returning safely home.
So the brooch would mean I will return to you and we will be together, forever!
