Can we talk about love for a minute? Great. Because I want to talk about love, particularly first loves, particularly our first fashion loves. I think that we have all kinds of first loves, and for one, I remember them all.Don’t you?
Sadly, all of our first loves don’t always turn out the way we’d like them to. The school yard crush can grow up to be a spectacular idiot. I look back at some of the fashions I loved back in the day and find myself wondering “What was I thinking?” (Eighties hair styles in particular can be pretty cringe-worthy!)
But the first pieces of fine horse jewelry I ever admired turned out to stand the test of time spectacularly well. Check out this Sterling Silver Horse Head Bracelet. Talk about classic style! Seven Art Deco Horse Heads are centered in square links, which are joined in a stylish, substantial bracelet. It gets just as many compliments today as when it was first made – a great piece of fine estate horse jewelry.
Here’s another great piece of antique horse jewelry that you’re going to love. This Antique Silver & Gold Plated Horse Bit Bracelet is by Marie and Dorette of Paris, and it dates to 1936.
To slip this piece of fine horse jewelry on is to connect with one of Paris’ most dramatic eras. When this bracelet was made, Picasso and his mistress, Dora Maar, were sharing meals together in sidewalk cafes. Throughout the countryside, the French workers were battling for true equality. Coco Chanel was just getting started in the fashion business.
Connect with that energy and elegance with a piece of signature jewelry you’ll love wearing. One of the best things about antique equestrian jewelry is the fact that you’re never going to see someone else wearing the same bracelet you are: these are truly one-of-a-kind looks.
And who doesn’t love being one of a kind?
