This pendant’s vibrant blue color evokes deep summer skies. The bird carved on the reverse is Swallow, a tiny, but swiftly elegant bird. Swallows are thought to bring good luck, since their skills are unparalleled, capable of navigating and long term flight across immense migratory distances. Not only to they survive this annual rite of passage, but they thrive on the cycle that their specialized bodies have developed.
Swallows also tend to live in large groups, and have harmonious relationships with one another. There is very little squabbling or strife among them, and this makes them an excellent symbol for friendship and love.
5/8“ tall by 5/8” wide by 1/4” thick. Length of pendant doesn't include the the part that the chain goes through, known as the bail. Please see the image with the ruler for scale. Shown on the Mini Box chain.
** Please note chains are sold separately, and you can find a great selection in different styles and lengths here on the Chains Page. **
A note about Labradorite's colors: Every effort is made to capture the best color of the gem when the item is photographed for presentation. This depends largely on the angle of the light on the stone when the image is captured. Labradorite's inherent nature means that under the right conditions, the color flash will be intensely luminous and vibrant. On the other hand, when you view your new piece under some conditions, it could appear very dark, or with even with only minimal color. This visual reminder of life's changeable nature is part of Labradorite's allure. You can incorporate this idea along with the specific emotional symbolism built into each one-of-a-kind, handmade silver setting. Enjoy!
