Some folks believe that a horseshoe must be turned up in order to be considered lucky. According to ancient folklore though, a horseshoe is lucky no matter which direction its turned. When the heels of the shoe are turned down as in these special earrings, the luck is said to spill out on the wearer. These lovely sterling silver earrings also feature the lucky seven nail head design. The horseshoe measures 1 1/8" tall or 1 3/4" overall including the ear wire.
