A striking large silver brooch of a swallow. It is set with graded marcasite (iron pyrites) and small red paste for the eyes.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. So a wonderful piece of jewellery to give to someone special.
