Victorian Rose Cut Diamond Horseshoe Ring

$1,250

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. This Victorian era horseshoe ring is modeled in gold and set with an array of bright, flinty rose cut diamonds.
