A stunning 18k yellow gold and diamond mourning pendant by the famous British Jeweler R&S Garrard and Company. Jewelers to the royal crown appointed by Queen Victoria. The date of manufacture of this pendant is 1880. This is quite obvious because the date is stamped in gold numerals on the front of the box. The pendant is absolutely fabulous with hand painted enamel, natural pearls and rose cut diamond accents.In the center is an ascending gold swallow. In ancient Greece, the swallow was associated with Aphrodite, the goddess of Love, and was believed to bring good luck and happiness. The ancient Romans believed that the swallow was a totem bird for mothers in sorrow, and that it embodied the souls of children who had been lost in childbirth. Modern Christians see the swallow as a symbol of sacrifice and rebirth, as well as a symbol for new beginnings. The size is large measuring 3 1/2 inches long with amazing detail. The quality of work is beyond compare! The back has blue woven fabric where a lock of hair usually would be kept in this era.
