Victorian Bird Brooch / Necklace
A beloved staple of Victorian era jewelry, the songbird has traversed the pages of history to become a celebrated symbol of joy and goodwill. The mockingbird is a mainstay in American literature, from Harper Lee’s canonical To Kill a Mockingbird to Suzanne Collins’s modern cult classic The Hunger Games - prominently emblazoned upon Dior darling Jennifer Lawrence’s chest, the mockingbird pin is a powerful symbol of hope in the dystopian action series.
Perfect for a book lover, this Victorian era fine sculpted mockingbird brooch comes equipped with a hook clasped removable 16" in braided 18K yellow gold chain and can also be worn as a pendant. Featuring rose-cut diamonds along its wings, a pearl in its beak, and rubies along its platinum tail feathers, this delicate mockingbird dates all the way back to 1890.
The 3.125" in x 1.75" in piece is in very good condition with minor scratching on the metal.
