Antique 19th Century Art Nouveau European Silver, 14K Gold & Niello Sword Brooch. This fantastic brooch was hand crafted in Central Europe around the end of the 19th Century during the Art Nouveau period and features a 800 silver oriental sword / dagger shape with 14K gold overlay and intricate Niello designs.

Why You’ll Love It. Symbolic jewelry is fascinating. Take a closer look at this antique, unmistakably Victorian pendant, as it tells a tale of forever, and how bonds cannot be untied through its infinity loop design.
