Victorian Swallow Chandelier Earrings (One of a kind)
These handmade Victorian inspired chandelier earrings feature a black brass swallow set atop long vintage brass and green glass chain. The unique texture, colors, and subtle aging of this piece creates a haunting antique aesthetic. This dramatically beautiful pair is a match to the Victorian swallow locket available here.
In the Victorian era, swallows were strongly associated with love, devotion, and loyalty. Because swallows mate for life, they were often depicted on romantic cards, stationary, and jewelry of the period. They also symbolized waiting for the safe return of a loved one who had embarked on a journey away from home.
