  • the story

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.

    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.
