Despite my aversion to horses, I’ve always been drawn to all things horse-related. This includes tall riding boots, old, wooden barns and yes, horseshoes. The “U”- shape is particularly appealing to me and the fact that they’re supposed to bring good luck is an added bonus. Helen Ficalora, who’s alphabet charms gained her enormous popularity, also has a variety of other shapes including this horseshoe charm ($185), with which I’m currently obsessed. With a little diamond and a intentionally distressed, off-center horseshoe, it packs just the right amount of luck and charm.
