This antique brooch/pin was crafted during the early Victorian era in solid 8k gold and features a beautiful flying swallow bird design. The bird is elegantly drenched with lovely seed pearls and a fine round cabochon ruby neatly set at its eye, adding a nice pop of color to this piece. The bird holds the largest seed pearl prong set at its beak. The patina has been preserved which gives this brooch its nice rosy yellow gold appearance. This antique piece features a pin as well as a hook backing that allows it to be worn as a brooch or hung from a pendant or watch.
