Happy New Year! Here we are, in the first days of 2012. Let’s start things off with taking a look at some great silver horse jewelry. One of the things you really have to love about silver is its versatility: silver can pull off the most elegant, modern sleek shine, or with time develop a lovely patina.That patina is a particular favorite of many horse jewelry lovers.
Check out this sterling silver greyhound and horseshoe pin. This is a great piece of antique horse jewelry. It’s fashioned in the Art Deco style – a time when greyhounds became fashion icons! – and is exquisitely detailed. We’ve enlarged the picture a little bit so you can see the ornate markings on the horseshoes and the detailed greyhound. The pin is 1 3/4″ long and 1″ wide – it looks great on jacket lapels!
Here’s another great piece of antique horse jewelry. (Curious about how to find great antique horse jewelry? Collectors often check estate sales, auctions, and of course, online jewelery stores to find their treasures!) This Art Deco Sterling Silver Happy Horse and Hound pin is full of a vibrant, dynamic energy that makes it fun to wear. Look at the flowing mane, streaming tail, and flying hooves. Can’t you just picture this noble steed flying over the landscape, running as fast as he can go? (Maybe there’s somebody standing at the fence with carrots in their pocket…) The dog is just as happy, running alongside as fast as he can. What great friendships happen in the barnyard.
Are you searching for a perfect piece of jewelry for the polo player? This Vintage Sterling Silver Hackney Horse pin is a great choice. It’s exquisitely detailed, a perfect portrayal of the restrained energy and elegance that is a polo pony. Behind the pony, a sterling silver polo mallet. This is a great piece of vintage horse jewelry that will be appreciated by any polo player!
