One of the magnificent bird brooches is a miniature glitter factory and as elegant of a design that can be imagined.
Diamonds and rubies encrusted the surface of this barn swallow bird motif brooch that will swoops and dive its way into your psyche and shall remain there.
A sign of devotion, freedom, and the cyclical nature of life, the swallow bird mates for life and always returns to its familiar nest to begin life anew.
Studded with diamonds, this silver-topped 14k rose gold jewel is lyrical in an unusually large size for its type. Dating to circa 1880, this Victorian beauty could also be converted to a pendant necklace if desired.
One hundred and fifty-five rose-cut diamonds are pavé set across the entire head, neck, wings, and body of this little feathered friend. A special touch, there is a briolette diamond dangling from the swallow’s ruby collar.
With a total of 2.65 carats, (color I-L, SI1-3), the surfaces are awash with refraction and light. Because rose cuts are flat on their reverse, the brooch visually creates an impression of over 5 carats of diamonds.
Seven rubies serve as the swallow's collar. One cabochon ruby dots the eye, and along with the beak, these areas are rimmed with gold.
With its wings set to soar, the design captures this breathtaking bird in flight.
