Description

Beautiful Victorian fully hallmarked silver 'Good Luck' brooch which we've reworked into a more contemporary necklace setting. The fabulous original brooch is a classic Victorian 'Good Luck' design of an embellished bar featuring the traditional good luck symbols of a horseshoe, ivy and a flower. Ivy was commonly used to symbolise fidelity, and the flower could be a poppy (health and sucess) or a forget me not (romantic love), so this might have been a general 'Good Luck' brooch or one made for a wedding. It looks fabulous as a necklace, and has been hung on a split 16" silver belcher chain, to give a nice length of 17.5", sitting just above the collarbone. Fully hallmarked for Chester, the year 1900. A lovely gift or truly special signature piece.

Size:

The central 'brooch' piece measures 47mm long by 18mm tall, and is hung on a split 16" chain to give a total length of c17.5".
