The C catch that secures the pin is marked with an Eagles head indicating the art jewel is composed of 18K solid gold of French origin, the makers mark is only partial so not legible.Approximately a notch over 2.8 cm (1 2/16 inches) from top of curved knock to bottom pearl. Approximately 4.4 cm (1 12/16 inches) from wing tip to wing tip. Swans haves always been equated with the angels of paradise from the persian word fardous, el-ganah in arabic. Swans were popularized in the romantic classical period of the 19th century by the great composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in his ballet Swan Lake.
Diamonds symbolize eternity while pearls symbolize purity, eternal pure & heaven bound flight! I consider such pieces to be marvels of miniature art for which the 19th century was famous for, light years more beautiful than todays miniature rice art which one can't even see with ones bare eyes and if one sneezes there goes ones moronic fellas investment. Do you love Swans and the classical period then here is a treasure like none other, so grab this spectacular Swan before it takes flight, for treasures such as these come only once in a lifetime!
