Dieu Vous Garde Gemstone Gold Horseshoe Bracelet

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A fabulous horseshoe bracelet with a bold, fabulous look! This bangle-style piece is made of 18kt yellow gold and forms the shape of a large horseshoe. The front surface of the bracelet is detailed with 7 natural gemstones representing nails (always 7 for good luck!). The ensemble of gemstones includes two sparkling diamonds, a deep blue sapphire, a vivid emerald, and two luscious rubies, all of which are beautifully faceted. The u-shaped bracelet curves comfortably around your wrist and is hinged at the bottom to easily slide on and off the wrist. Along the outside edge are the French words "DIEU VOUS GARDE" in royal blue enamel, which translates to the message "May God Watch Over You". There is a gold safety chain connecting the two ends for added security, which fastens with a simple gold swivel watch clasp. This bracelet is a very fashionable, classic piece that could be worn alone or stacked with other bracelets. It would be a perfect piece for the equestrian enthusiast or the fashion conscious woman!

The opening (where a wrist would rest) measures approximately 2 1/4" wide and 1 3/4" tall when closed. When opened, the bracelet expands to 2" tall to accommodate a larger wrist when worn. The surface of the bangle measures approximately 1/4" at the widest point and is 3/8" thick. The overall pennyweight of the piece is 45.9dwt.
