An exquisite piece of antique engraved jewelry, featuring a swallow and botanicals.
Swallows are a common motif in Victorian jewelry and for sailors (such as with a sailor’s tattoo, denoting nautical miles traveled). The birds can be seen before land is spotted so have come to represent a successful voyage, hope, and return to home.
10k solid gold, size 11.75 and somewhat resizable (see space in engraving at back)
This is a preowned Storied Collection piece and hence is expected to show some evidence of wear and age consistent with its age and origins. Storied Collection pieces are final sale
