Over the years, we’ve been lucky enough to see fine horse jewelry from all around the world. It is a source of constant amazement the love of horses is truly global. People from every country adore the beauty, passion and power of the horse.
The way they express this adoration through fine horse jewelry is a special delight. While much of the estate and vintage horse jewelry we see has a European provenance – England is particularly well represented – there are some amazing jewelry designers working in Latin America and Mexico.
The Sanchez-MacFarland family from the Taxco region is one example. Their Los Castillo company is world famous for the finest sterling silver jewelry. We’re thrilled to be able to offer this sterling silver horse earrings and pin set, which is signed Los Castillo. Look at the energy and dynamic style of the design: the stylized lines and wing-like shapes give a real sense of a horse’s fiery passion and high spirit. These are great sterling silver horse earrings that you can wear every day.
Another example of fine silver horse jewelry from around the world is this pair of Sterling Silver Asian Horse Earrings. Here, the design aesthetic is completely different. We still have the power and strength of the horse represented, but the rendering is much more naturalistic. There are small Asian motifs on either side of the round earring, a nice finishing detail. These are large earrings – nearly 3/4″ across, which makes them perfect for the horsewoman who favors a bold look.
Finally, let’s finish up this tour of sterling silver horse earrings with a pair of lovely handmade sterling silver horseshoe earrings from right here in the USA. These petite beauties are only 3/4″ by 3/4″, set with cubic zirconia for just the right amount of sparkle. Great for everyday wear: they pair perfectly with casual attire but can stand up perfectly well to dressier occasions. The small size and equestrian motif make a great choice for the show ring as well!
