Inspired by some of my own Victorian jewelry, I created a turquoise, red spinel, and freshwater pearl chain for this wonderful swallow locket. I adore birds in jewelry, especially swallows and their symbolism, and I was thrilled to be able to source this lovely locket. Incorporating colors used in my own antique pieces keeps the essence of the original piece while making it completely wearable for today’s woman.
Swallows mate for life, and are also considered symbolic for love, loyalty and good luck. Sailors always viewed them as a sign for a safe journey home and a successful voyage.
The locket opens and closes securely, and there are two places for photos (please note that there are no covers present for the photos). A quick cleaning was given to the locket, but there is still plenty of patina on the piece. I left it to the buyers discretion if they wanted to polish it more, or leave it as-is.
