Victorian Diamond Enamel Swallow Brooch
With an aesthetic just as pleasing as the actual flight of a graceful swallow bird, this Victorian brooch circa 1880 will be a constant reminder of family, friendship and honor. Quite representational, the slender streamlined body, long pointed wings and elongated forked tail are crafted of silver topped 14k yellow gold. Embellished with polychromatic blue enamel and a mix of sixty-four (64) rose cut and old mine cut diamonds of an estimated .50 carats, the iridescent wonder of an avian effortlessly glides through the air. Its diamond-studded head with ruby set eyes keeps a steady focus to return always to home base.
Date: Circa 1880.
Measurements: 1-1/2 inches (3.7 cm) in length by 2-5/8 inches (7 cm) in width. Weight of 12.7 grams (8.1 dwt).
Condition: Excellent; one rose cut diamond in head replaced with a brilliant cut diamond; later hinge and replaced or reinforced "C" clasp.
Note: Diamonds have not been removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting. All diamond weights have been approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weights.
