The horseshoe is known to be a symbol of good luck and protection, so it makes the perfect piece to add to your charm collection to wear as a daily talisman. Horseshoes that point upwards are said to 'hold luck in' whilst horseshoes that point downwards are said to 'shower luck out'. Downwards pointing horseshoes can be a little controversial though too as some believe it's an unluckly direction for the horseshoe to point in!

The charm measures approx 14mm tall (including the bail) by approx 8mm wide and weighs approx 0.65g.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with just light surface wear to the gold and stone.
