The arrangement is accented with the third swallow being entirely crafted in 18k yellow gold, with a textured finish representing its feathers. Old round cut rubies have been used to create the birds' eyes. This stunning and original Victorian brooch secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and push fit clasp. The brooch is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card and has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 18k gold.
