Antique Victorian 22K Solid Gold Flying Swallow Bird Brooch Pin Diamond in Beak
This is a stunning antique brooch. I have only seen a couple like this but they were missing the diamond charm on the beak. It has a standard C catch and a long pin that extends well beyond the catch which is typical of pins from this period. This brooch has the density and color of high grade gold and it holds strong at 22 karat but it could be higher.

The detail of the feathers throughout is incredible including the breast and tail feathers. You have to see it in person to appreciate it. The enamel has a couple of chips and some wear spots commensurate with the age of the piece.

The diamond on the charm that is attached to a link in the birds mouth is mine cut and the diamonds on the 2 wings are rose cuts. The diamonds are set in silver topped gold which again was a standard way to set diamonds at the time. There are tiny rubies in each eye. It is 1 1/2" wide from wing tip to wing tip and 1 1/8" long.

During the Victorian era a flying swallow represented a safe journey and return home. This lovely piece is in absolutely beautiful condition especially when you consider it is well over 100 years old.
