What a beautiful Victorian era 14K yellow gold horseshoe pin set with 11 old mine cut natural pink Tourmaline stones. Just a brilliant pink color for these tourmalines. The wearing of horseshoe jewelry in the Victorian era was attractive and common. The symbol was believed to help ward off demons, hardships, misfortune and protect the wear from evil spirits. It was common believe that the symbol would bring to the owner success, harmony and many blessings and why we have the "Lucky Horseshoe" beliefs today.

All of my gold and silver is authenticated before listing for sale. This piece has been xray analyzed using a Niton XRF Spectrometer to ensure the metal makeup meets industry standards for solid gold jewelry. Where appropriate, acid testing has been used as well. You will not buy gold or silver from me that does not meet the industry standards for how the piece is marked unless noted in the listing.
Gemstones have been tested using a presidium gem tester and have not been reviewed, except where noted, by a gemologist so please assume they are lab produced stones as my opinions are only my opinions. Diamonds have been verified using a presidium diamond tester, they have not been sized or graded by a gemologist. All measurements of stones have been done using a digital caliper, are approximate and may not be exact.
