Pigs have considered a symbol of luck for many centuries often the fatter the pig, the wealthier the year would be. In the Victorian-era, lucky pigs were often decorated on cards and gifts. In America, lucky pig candy was being manufactured and in England, Queen Victoria’s trend-setting propensity for sending cards and gifts with symbology saw an increase in cards with images of lucky pigs.

This is a lovely, unique Victorian-era piece in 9ct rose gold by the renowned Birmingham workshop Adie & Lovekin is a rare example of the amalgamation of two symbols of luck - a pig atop a lucky horseshoe. Clearly the wearer was hoping to be especially lucky! This combination of two symbols of fortune is both rare and beautiful - perfect as a pendant or as a charm.

The piece is fully hallmarked for 9ct gold and bears Adie & Lovekin’s maker’s mark.

ABOUT OUR JEWELLERY

This piece has been specifically selected by us, for you. We choose vintage and antique items which we think are beautiful, elegant and classic at a range of price points between £30 and £3,000.

Generally, this means we only ever have one of each piece. We don’t select pieces which are “mass market” but rather items which are more individual. This means that once an item has been purchased, it really has gone.

Each piece comes in an attractive jewellery presentation box.
