Why are horseshoes the ultimate symbol of luck? The legend of St. Dunstan in Irish folklore dates the idea of the lucky horseshoe back to the 10th century. St Dunstan was said to be a blacksmith who was visited by the Devil asking for his own hooves to be shod. When the Saint shod him, he used burning hot iron and the Devil begged to be released. St. Dunstan released him on the condition that the Devil agree not to pass any threshold where a horseshoe was hung. The luck of horseshoes grew over time, iron was thought to be lucky as it withstood fire and horseshoes were traditionally made of iron. Add to that they are usually held with 7 nails and the number 7 is often thought to be lucky and you can start to see how the horseshoe earned its luck over time!

This wonderful horseshoe is set with 15 old European and transitional cut diamond with wonderful color and flash. In total the graduated stones add up to about 1 carat in diamonds. The hand crafted setting is done in 18 karat gold with the stones set in platinum which has a lovely inner mill-grained detail. The pendant measures 27 mm top to bottom including the bale and 14 mm across, it weighs 2.3 grams. It is stamped ‘750’ for 18 karat gold, made around 1910.
