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. In the case of this rare and exquisite late Victorian horseshoe bangle, how about wearing it sideways around the wrist? Fashioned in buttery yellow gold, this bangle hinges open at the top and stays securely in place thanks to its curb link safety chain. It may just bring you luck and it will most certainly bring you many compliments.
