Victorian Sterling Silver Lucky Horseshoe Ring
Horseshoe and equestrian motifs in jewelry were very popular during Victorian era (ca1880), and this ring is a lovely example. Originally a Victorian pin, the sterling silver horseshoe now rests on a modern sterling band, making this a very stylish conversion piece! Set within the top of the horseshoe are 7 "nail heads" (always 7 for good luck!) which are depicted by simple raised studs. There is a darkened natural patina on the surface of the horseshoe, which adds depth and an antiqued quality to the design. Perfect for the equestrian enthusiast, this fabulous horseshoe ring would make a special addition to any jewelry collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 6.5, but could easily be resized up or down if desired. The horseshoe measures 3/4" tall and 5/8" wide.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the silver setting. The darkened natural patina is normal for a Victorian era piece and adds depth to the design, but could be polished for a brighter look if desired.
