Edwardian Pearl Swallow Necklace

$775

In the northern hemisphere the migration of the swallow is one of the early indications of spring and sign of the fertile period to come. According to lore, swallows were a welcome sight to voyage-weary sailors who believed the little birds prevented ships from getting lost. This pearl-studded gold swallow is a symbol of abundance and homecoming.
