Victorian Garnet Swallow Bird Bar Pin Brooch

Victorian Garnet Swallow Bird Bar Pin Brooch


Here is a very sweet antique brooch featuring a trio of garnet Swallow birds. The swallow was a popular Victorian symbol for sweetheart jewelry, often gifted befor a journey or as a symbol of faithfulness. These three swallows sit on a pin with a round garnet head. Each bird has nine rose cut pyrope garnets, these were called "bohemian" garnets by the Victorians. The brooch has a faded gold wash over a base metal. The pin works nicely and the original C clasp has been replaced to a secure safety clasp. This darling antique brooch is ready to wear, collect, or gift to someone special.

• This brooch is over 100 years old and shows light age-related wear. The tube thing on the pin is original, but the safety clasp appears to be a early/mid-century replacement for an older C-clasp. Works nicely!
