Passionate about animal rights? Love history? If you can answer yes to both of those questions, victorian horse jewelry might hold a special appeal for you. The Victorian era was about style, grace, and — especially guided by the female thought leaders of the time — kindness. It was during the Victorian era that we first start to see concern for the welfare of all animals — and particularly horses, which provided humanity with both transport and freight moving services. From that beginning, compassion and care for horses have been part of many of your lives.
We know that many of our readers are involved in animal rescue, special-case adoption, fostering, and rehabilitation of injured horses. Taking the love of horses above and beyond in this fashion is admirable — just as our Victorian predecessors advocated for better care of the horses in their time, you are helping transform the way that we, and all of society, sees horses.
You can see the Victorians’ love of horses in their Victorian Equestrian jewelry. For example, take a look at this Victorian Gold Bridled Horse Head Fob Pendant. Once again, we see the noble horse ready to carry a rider — but from the fine form, animated spirit, and sheer energy of the art, clearly a horse healthy and eager for the task! A heavy, gold filled piece, this pendant is bold and dynamic, classic to complement every outfit. Blank on the back, it can easily be engraved with a name — or perhaps a date to commemorate a special occassion.
