Symbolizing love in its purest form, this antique Victorian brooch tells a classic story of faithfulness and the return of a loved one through its crescent moon and swallow design. Romantics at heart will love the rose gold foliate and niello design, and the distinctive detail and charm given to the bird on its way home, which is what makes this piece so sentimental. Bright patina with minimal surface wear to the setting. Fresh sheen, light surface wear, and no chipping on the niello or rose gold finish. On Symbolism In Jewelry. Symbolism in antique and vintage jewelry is common, yet it can be hard to spot if you don’t know what you’re looking for. Often, specific natural gemstones, flowers, birds, and motifs like stars and anchors were imbued with meanings that have fallen out of present-day society’s collective memory. To appreciate the power of symbols in antique jewelry is to imagine what it would have been like to wear the piece and step back into history. A young Queen Victoria assumed her role in 1837 and her taste in jewelry quickly became culturally influential, within England and beyond. Her relationship to jewelry was enmeshed with her husband, Prince Albert, who gifted the Queen for their engagement, a snake ring, embedded with an emerald (her birthstone) in its head. Continuing from the Georgian era and intensified by Queen Victoria. Taste, sentimental and figural jewelry was a major trend throughout the Victorian era. When certain ideas and words were deemed too forward or improper to be spoken, jewelry and symbolic meaning was used to communicate what was left unsaid. _gsrx_vers_1436 GS 9.0.5 (1436).
