For sailors, seeing swallows was a sign that their travels were nearing an end. Because these birds never traveled far out to sea, their sighting meant that land was near and the long voyage was coming to an end. This fact led many sailors to start adopting swallow tattoo designs as a symbol of hope and a successful finish to a long journey. Yet another interpretation is for an everlasting love and loyalty, related to the fact that swallows mate for life. From the Sweet Romance Pin Collection featuring icons of beauty, mystery and a hint of magic. Enduring symbols of legend, inspiration and guidance, they connect past with present for this journey called life. Using traditional bench techniques, every pin is hand-fabricated with the original sculptures of Sweet Romance and elements from our rich archive of jewelry artifacts.
