Vintage Victorian Style Sterling Silver Open Heart Swallow Bird Chained Brooch Set #c901
This charming Victorian style sweetheart brooch set is comprised of fine sterling silver. When I first saw this brooch set, I was convinced that it was an antique as it had such fabulous workmanship and patina. But when I turned it over, I discovered that it is actually a reproduction piece manufactured in the United Kingdom by the Period Jewellery Manufacturing Co (PJM). The central brooch is an openwork heart with a swallow bird swooping down at the top. The heart is decorated at the bottom with beautiful raised flowers and leaves and it has chased vines that travel around the entire heart. The bottom edge of the heart is accented with pretty silver bead details. The brooch closes with a rolling c clasp. A fine silver chain connects the heart brooch to a separate swallow bird pin. The swallow pin has a pin back that merely slides on to fabric. All of the accents are highly detailed on this marvelous set. It's a gorgeous brooch that you can wear in myriad ways!

The heart brooch measures about 1 1/8 inches long and 1 inch wide. It is signed and hallmarked "PJM" for Period Jewellery Manufacturing in two places, with an anchor symbol for the Birmingham assay office, with a lion symbol for silver, with a letter "V" in script for the year 1995", with a common control mark and "925" on the back. The small swallow pin is approximately 1/2 inch long and 5/8 inch wide. It is unsigned but clearly matches the swallow on the heart brooch. The chain that connects the two pins is about 1 1/2 inches long. The combined weight of the set is 6.7 grams.

This brooch set is absolutely delightful! It would make a wonderful addition to a vintage jewelry collection and a fabulous gift! It's in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear!
