What do The Hunger Games and antique jewelry have in common? Brooches with birds on them! The Mockingjay pin from The Hunger Games series has a striking resemblance to our mourning pin with a bird about to take flight, a common symbol of the ascending soul to heaven in the Victorian era. Our pin is 10 karat gold and features a vegetal motif behind the bird along with a circular wave design that encompasses the outside rim of the pin. Who knew pop culture and Victorian jewelry could be so well matched!
