A pretty octagonal shaped 9ct back and front locket set with paste. The subject is a swallow with a bow below. The swallow was considered daring, risk-seeking, and a symbol of change for good in the future. It also meant everlasting love and loyalty as swallows mate for life. The bow underlines this “Tying the knot” so it would make a wonderful gift to someone you love.
