Sapphire & Diamond Horseshoe Bangle
Nearly nothing was as important to the Victorian jewelry connoisseur as symbolism. The horseshoe shape was exceptionally popular as a symbol of good luck that could ward off evil spirits. There are many origin stories regarding the horseshoe’s meaning. Early Mesopotamian peoples found the crescent shape reminiscent of a moon goddess’s protective powers. Either way, it is clear that this exceptional bracelet has been struck with luck given those eight round, bright sapphires and five old mine cut diamonds. With stones set into starburst cutouts along the cuff, this piece typifies Victorian tastes and artistry.
