Seven horseshoes. Seven nails. The horseshoe as a good luck charm has been warding off evil sprits and providing good mojo for hundreds of years. It is believed that the horseshoe became the symbol of luck when the eighth century Chaldeans thought its crescent shape represented various moon goddesses thus protecting against the curse of the evil eye.
The basic metal makeup even made the horseshoe an easy favorite as a lucky charm. Even the amount of nail holes made this protective footwear lucky! Seven holes were made into the shoe to hold it in place on the hoof. Seven is one of the luckiest of numbers on earth as it appears so frequently in nature. There are seven days of the week, seven seas, seven continents & even seven colors in a rainbow.
This 1 1/2" sterling silver horseshoe is suspended on a 19" long necklace of offset knotted silver Swarovski Pearls and will bring lots of luck to its new owner!
