Detailed Victorian Horseshoe Locket in Silver

The Victorians loved their symbolism, especially good luck charms. Clovers and horseshoes soared in popularity during the later 1800s, right when this locket was made. Horseshoes were thought to be a source of good luck and to protect against evil. Wearing a charm like this one was considered essential for daywear, especially after Prince Albert gifted his beloved Queen, Victoria a bracelet of nine heart lockets, in memory of each of their children. Victorians also wore jewelry that expressed their hobbies, the wearer of this bauble could easily have been an equestrian lover.

This antique Victorian silver horseshoe locket was handcrafted around 1890. This shiny pendant features a horseshoe motif that opens to reveal a space for a favorite photograph! Both the front and back have this detailed repoussé horseshoe design, and even the sides are engraved with structural lines. This locket weighs 9.1 grams and measures 38 x 26 x 7.3 mm overall. It has been professionally acid tested.
