ABOUT THIS BROOCH

A bird in flight is a wonder to behold, and this one is especially so. With its sweeping wingspan of 4 3/8 inches, this beautifully soaring swallow is topped at the crown of his head with a bright .25 carat European-cut diamond, and shimmers all over with rose-cut diamond-set feathers. With sharp ruby eyes, he's looking for a place to land and he's coming your way. Circa early-1900s. Total diamond weight, 3.60 carats. Hand fabricated and hand engraved in platinum (beak is 18K yellow gold and pin is 18K rose gold).

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
