As fashionable today as it was when it was made in about 1880, the elements of this delightful brooch simultaneously evoke the designers Chanel and Cartier, as well as Castellani. And it will appeal to horseshoe fans as well!

The uncluttered design points to its English origins, as does the handcrafted setting of silver-topped nine-carat gold.

It contains more than three carats of well-matched white and bright old cut diamonds, tapering in size from the four central stones – which are each about half a carat in size.

This is definitely one for both sexes to wear and look fabulous!
