Early Victorian 14kt Natural Ruby + Diamond Horseshoe Pendant Necklace
An incredible horseshoe necklace from the early Victorian (ca1850s) era! This gorgeous piece, which was originally a pin, has since been converted to a pendant hanging from a rosy 10kt gold chain. The pendant features 11 stunning natural rubies in an open-backed setting surrounded on both sides by sparkling old Rose Cut diamonds. The prong set rubies display a luscious rich pinkish red hue and radiate in the light with every turn. Attached to each end of the horseshoe is the fine chain, which fastens with a spring ring clasp stamped "10K". A unique and attractive piece, it blends seamlessly into modern-day fashion and would make a perfect accessory for the equestrian enthusiast or someone looking for good luck!
Measurements: The overall length of the necklace is 18.5". The horseshoe pendant measures nearly 3/4" tall, 3/4" wide, and is 1/16" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. All of the ruby and diamond stones are intact and securely set. The spring ring clasp is secure and in good working order.
