Description

An Edwardian horseshoe pin studded with diamonds and cabochon turquoise is re-imagined here as a delicate  ring with the addition of a handsome split shank rendered in 14k gold to match the original setting.

HISTORY

One of the most popular symbols of good fortune in the Victorian and Edwardian eras was the horseshoe. Like the clover, wearing it was thought to bring good luck and fortune to the wearer, and many believed the luck was "stored" inside the horseshoe's curve.

Turquoise has been prized since the Ancient Egyptians as a stone with a special power for healing, and used as a symbol of true love and friendship. Queen Victoria gifted her ladies-in-waiting incredible pieces of turquoise jewelry, and some even believe that wearing the stone around your neck or wrist will draw out impurities and negative energy from the body.
