The swallow is symbolic of hope, fertility and renewal of life. Another symbol of the love goddess, Venus, the Roman's believed it was extremely unlucky to harm a swallow. Further, the Roman's believed the swallow to be a totem bird to mothers in sorrow as it was said the swallow embodied all the young, innocent's who died during childbirth.
Antiqued gold swallow family necklace. The larger sparrow on this necklace measures 41mm x 18mm and has a flat back. Made from antiqued gold, it has a very elegant and sophisticated finish. This finish is achieved through oxidation and is not plated. The smaller antiqued gold bird connectors also have a flat back. The necklace measures 18" in total length, with an S-hook closure.
*You may add on more birds at additional cost. I have made a family-of-five necklace for a special order.

Caring for your necklace:
This lacquer is there to protect the finish from turning colors over time. Do not use a polishing cloth, paste or other methods to polish the items, as you will remove the protective lacquer and leave behind unprotected brass. A damp cloth is all you need to clean the item.
