Rare Find

The most charming novelty brooch I have seen in a long time. The modelling is superb. It consists of four sociable swallows sitting on a branch with rose cut diamond berries. Their bodies are studded with rose diamonds and their wings are a deep and pale brown carved onyx. Their eyes are tiny cabochon rubies. The swallow represents love, care and affection towards family and friends, showing the loyalty of the person always returning to them.
