Late 19th Century French Equestrian Diamond Bangle



There is some debate about the correct orientation of the lucky horseshoe. Some say it should be worn with points facing down in order for good fortune held within to pour forth, others say it should face up in order to catch the prosperity raining down from the heavens. In the case of this late 19th century French bracelet, why not round out the equestrian theme and add a riding crop (not to mention 15 rose cut diamonds)? This stunning piece with a chic perforated shank and crossover face was made by Clerc Paris, a high end jewelry house established by Charles Clerc in 1874. Bangle comes in its original box.
