An absolutely adorable and exquisitely modelled antique sweetheart brooch that could have very well been worn by a Victorian bride on her wedding day!
Crafted in sterling silver, we are astounded by the incredible level of detail in such a tiny piece. The pin depicts 2 love birds/turtle doves sitting on a mistletoe covered bough above a bell, complete with a clapper, that dangles with every movement. The mistletoe berries, veins on the leaves, birds feathers and tree bark are all brought to life with realistic detail!
Bursting with Victorian sentiment and symbolism this sweet piece of antique sweetheart jewellery is a classic love token, and a lovely accent accessory good for the gents or the ladies. Utterly charming, a unique tie or cravat pin for the wedding groom!
