Edwardian Seed Pearl Swallow Earrings


In the northern hemisphere the migration of the swallow is one of the early indications of spring and sign of the fertile period to come. According to lore, swallows were a welcome sight to voyage-weary sailors who believed the little birds prevented ships from getting lost and led them into safe harbor. This sweet pair of pearl-studded gold swallows are a symbol of abundance and homecoming.
