Secure Payments By
A beautiful antique, late Victorian era sterling silver locket brooch. It is a rectangular shape with aesthetic manner engraving to the front which features a Swallow in flight, the Swallow often symbolised safe travel or safe return. This brooch is so full of sentiment, probably given to the recipient as a promise piece or love token. It is a locket back brooch with a compartment to the reverse and a lift out glazed panel, this has been filled with rough cut amethyst but could be used to store a tiny keepsake or a lock of hair. The locket compartmemt is very loose in the setting though as is the glazed panel too so it would be a good idea to secure it with something but I didn't seal it up in case the new owner wanted to swap out the amethyst for something personal. It has an old C type clasp and is marked silver. Any questions please contact us.
