This is a large and impressive horseshoe brooch! A classic piece of English jewelry, dating to the late Victorian era, it tests as 15 karat but is not hallmarked. The brooch features 15 lustrous, bead-set half pearls, graduated in size, lining the interior of the horseshoe.
This piece would look gorgeous pinned to a sweater or blazer but it would also make a lovely necklace. If you'd be interested in converting it to a necklace I'd be happy to assist you with that. Please email me and I can provide you with a few examples of previous conversions.
