Antique brooch with a citrine love heart and two swallows
This antique brooch was made in 18 carat yellow gold and set with a citrine surrounded by pearls with a swallow on each side.
Historically, swallows are often seen in jewellery and represent love and loyalty as swallows mate for life and always go back to their nest. Because of this, they also represented a safe return as it was thought that swallows lead ships home when they were returning to port.
