This is such a beautiful example of a late 1800s Sweetheart Pin. These brooches were given as "love tokens" usually depicting the classic motifs of the Victorian era. This particular Sweetheart Pin is silver and scattered with paste stones. Cast as a classic Victorian Crescent Moon cutting through a Heart with a tiny Star on top. These motifs during this era all represented a sentimental meaning. The moon was a symbol representing "female empowerment" and a heart with a star or crown at the top gave the meaning "guide/ruler of my heart". We have used our fine 2mm gold filled belcher to create this piece, making the charm the focal point of the piece. Full of history & a story to tell, this necklace is one to be passed down through generations.
Wear it solo or layer with others, eitherway you will treasure it ❤️
