This Egyptian Revival white enamel and pearl horseshoe conversion pendant is for the equestrian lover and carries the symbol of luck. The stickpin dates back to the Egyptian Revival period circa 1840 and has linear gold lines that split the white enamel and than spaced by pearls.
This was a stickpin that was converted to a necklace by removing the pin and adding a 10k yellow gold chain to it. The chain is 16" with an additional drop added by the pendant that makes the necklace hang to 16.5" length. It looks lovely layered with a longer chain as well.

Egyptian Revival Victorian Pearl Horseshoe Necklace in 10k Yellow Gold
Bracelets and rings get the most wear out of all the styles of jewelry. Make sure that your jewelry is professionally cleaned and your stones checked annually.
For gold rings, the higher the karat weight, the softer the metal will be, and the easier it will scratch. Frequent polishing is unecessary. Polishing your rings removes layers of metals and will thin it out through time.
The same goes with platinum, as it is a malleable and softer metal, yet denser, which makes it last longer. Platinum is also a white metal naturally and stays white, whereas white gold is yellow that has white alloys giving it a whiter appearance, but will never be as white as platinum.
For high value items, typically of $1,000, it is a good idea to have your pieces insured on your homeowners policy or with a separate insurer like Jewelers Mutual.
