You're in Luck!

The horseshoe is one of the best-known good-luck charms, and has been for centuries. In the middle ages, a trio of horseshoes would be nailed above a sick person's bed to bring on a speedy recovery. And superstitious sailors believed that attaching a horseshoe to the mast of their ships would help their vessels safely navigate through tumultuous waters. Even today, the horseshoe's iconic scooped shape is still considered to be a symbol of hope and prosperity, and it can be seen hung above doorways around the world to bring good fortune to the occupants inside.

Inspired by this powerful omen's lucky charms, Chicago-based jewelry designer Dana Reed created this series of sophisticated pieces that evokes the horseshoe's iconic shape in a subtly beautiful fashion. In this necklace, a u-shaped strand of brushed sterling silver droplets encircle a smaller, 14 karat rose-gold-filled hoop, hinting at the horseshoe's well-known shape for double the luck. Don it everyday to increase your chances of warding off misfortune, or spread the luck around by giving the piece to a friend in need. Handmade in Chicago.

“I think everyone should have at least one statement piece that they pull out and feel great in and sets them apart.””

It was Dana Reed’s lifelong plan to be a lawyer, but while studying abroad in Rome, something changed. Inspired by European culture and mid-century modern art, Dana discovered her passion for art, and began crafting jewelry. Her hand-fashioned designs started as simple, beaded pieces, but over time became complex metal works. They are an effortless marriage of sophisticated minimalism with a hint of urban edge. Dana envisions her jewelry on someone who isn’t afraid to take risks or make a statement. She lives and creates in Chicago.

Comments about UncommonGoods Horseshoe Pendant:

This is a great looking necklace and pendant. If the pendant itself is sterling, it is not marked. It it is not sterling, the price is high for a non-precious metal.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Horseshoe Pendant:

          I love the design and materials in the necklace. It's quite stylish and not something you see every day. My only critique is that the chain is quite delicate and lighter in color than the silver of the pendant itself. It would be very difficult to change out the chain, since it is threaded through very small holes in the pendant pieces. I still like the necklace, but that's the reason for four stars instead of five.

            I have owned this necklace for over a year now and I continue to wear it all the time. It pairs well with a variety of outfits and the adjustable chain makes it easy to get the perfect length. I also love the unique design and materials. Uncommongoods, please add some Dana Reed earrings to coordinate with the oxidized silver or rose gold. That would be fantastic!

                Love this necklace. It is just as I pictured it, and so unique. The gift recipient was thrilled with the mixed metals as well as the design itself as we all ride horses together. An extraordinary gift for a reasonable price!

                  This is a unique, lovely piece of jewelry. I love the two-tone look. It's a little larger than I was expecting, but that's a plus.
