Reworked Victorian Sweetheart Pins are new to our antique collection & we are so excited to include them. Originating in the late 1800s, these brooches were given as "love tokens" usually depicting the classic motifs of the Victorian era. This particular Sweetheart Pin is a silver double horseshoe with two hearts & flowers at their centre. We have also added a 4mm freshwater pearl that hangs down the back of the clasp. The horseshoe motifs were hugely popular during this era & those facing upwards with hearts in the design were given as symbols for good luck in love. 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 ❤️
Necklace measures 16 inches but can also be clasped at 14.5 inches.
Pendant measures 3 cms across widest point.
