PRELOVED SILVER RUBY SET SPARROW BROOCH
I'm honestly not sure if this sweet little one is a sparrow, starling, wren or finch of some variety (fat beak? Limit of my expertise reached!), but I'm going with a sparrow. Happy to be corrected by any twitchers out there!
Sparrow brooch handmade in Silver. This lightweight brooch has been hand-crafted in shiny silver and depicts a small bird about to take flight from a branch. The eye of the bird is picked out with a weeny Ruby. The Silver is only semi-solid, so the jewellery is lightweight for versatility and would be eyecatching on an outfit of any colour. There is some oxidisation but this actually emphasises the fine work on the feathers and adds to the character of this piece.
A unique gift for a bird lover of any age, this sparrow brooch would appeal to anyone who enjoys gardens, wildlife, the countryside and jewels!
Measuring 39.5mm across and with a 25mm pin with a safety catch on the reverse, it will be delivered to you in a fully recycled Christine Alexander gift box.
Are sparrows good luck? A common superstition states that these birds are the souls of the dead, so it is bad luck to kill them. This belief closely resembles that of ancient Egyptians and of traditional sailors. They get sparrow tattoos because the sparrows will catch and carry their dead souls if they die at sea.
