victorian horseshoe sapphire and old mine cut diamond 14k gold ring


The Story

The horseshoe is a favorite motif of ours and is thought to bring the wearer good luck. This Victorian-era ring is made in 14 karat yellow gold. It features four Old Mine cut diamonds measuring 0.04 carats to 0.07 carats for a total of approximately 0.22 carats. Alternating the diamonds are five old cut round sapphires giving the ring a great pop of color. We love the stone combo, especially set against the warm 14k yellow gold.

This sweet ring came to us as is, but we believe it started its life as a Victorian-era stickpin and someone expertly converted it to a ring. Currently a 3, it makes a great pinkie ring but is sizable to a 10 which makes it great for any finger. We love it on its own for a sweet and simple look or paired with your other favorite rings.
