A Victorian example of equestrian jewelry with its horseshoe theme, this antique brooch blends the suggestions of animals with good fortune. How can it not be a delight?
Circa 1880, this 15k yellow gold over silver brooch rests in its original box. It consists of antique diamonds and explosive electric blue natural sapphires.
Incorporated into the horseshoe imagery, on each side are placed leaves and a sapphire, and a pointed tipped end with diamonds.
Always an extra treat to find a piece in its original box, this one of red textured paper and cream velvet and silk interior from, "Parkes, 5 Vigo Street, Regent Street. W." (for West End London).
