A gorgeous antique Victorian 9ct gold lucky horseshoe brooch.

The horseshoe has for centuries been used in jewellery as a symbol of good luck and featured heavily in Victorian jewellery, the Victorian era saw a great surge in the popularity of jewels with meaning and symbolism and the horseshoe was no exception.

This lovely piece is crafted in 9ct yellow bloomed gold, giving it a higher carat appearance, lightly brushed and polished in different areas highlighting the different areas of the horseshoe.

The bottom rim is engraved with the name Violetta, probably given originally as a good luck gift.

This brooch can be worn in many ways and is a beautiful and versatile piece.
