About

This 14k yellow gold necklace features 2 swallows at the base, joining together to hold a pear shape yellow diamond with a smaller swallow above holding a single, natural seed pearl. The birds are joined by a 14k yellow gold chain. The piece was bloomed, giving it the look of higher karat yellow gold. The small markings on the back of the swallows comes from testing the metal. The swallow was commonly used to represent undying love because a swallow is one of the few birds to mate for life with one partner. The 18 inch yellow gold chain looks original and matches the age of the piece.
