An extraordinary Russian sapphire and diamond brooch. This brooch was made in the nineteenth century by Koechly Frederic Christian, court jeweller to Empress Maria Fyodorovna, wife of Tsar Alexander III and mother to Tsar Nicholas II. This brooch is crafted from yellow gold in the shape of two interlocking horseshoes, one set with dazzling diamonds and the other with bright sapphires. The horseshoe has long been associated with luck, and lucky charms abounded in nineteenth-century European jewellery. At the top of the diamond set horseshoe is a diamond set vine, wrapping around the horseshoe and culminating in a further bright and stunning cabochon-cut sapphire. This detailed brooch is eye-catching and exquisite.
