Victorian Bohemian Garnet Horseshoe Brooch
Stunning large Victorian horseshoe brooch with genuine Bohemian rose cut garnets set in tombak/gilt metal.
During the Late Victorian period there were recurring themes used such as horseshoes, owls, barrels, animal heads, wishbones, crescents, trefoils, clovers, knots, bows, double hearts, crowns, and stars. The horseshoe is a symbol of good luck and protection.
All the garnet stones are hand-faceted and glisten when they catch the light. Stones very in size. The brooch measures 1-1/4" tall by 1-1/8" wide. It is in superb condition. No missing stones.
Such a gorgeous Victorian garnet piece!
