Vintage Horse Themed Pins: Great for the Latter Part of the 2014 Chinese Calendar


The Chinese zodiac identifies the latter part of 2014 as the year of the wood horse. This is a great time to wear your horse-themed jewelry, and Peter Suchy Jewelers have the right vintage pins to add to your collection.

Gold Horse Pin featuring Natural Seed Pearls 

 

This beautiful horse seems to be captured in mid stride. It is made of 14k solid yellow gold. Twenty-seven natural seed pearls measuring between .025mm and 1.0mm stud the piece. A beautiful natural patina has developed over the cream-colored pearls. Due to the superior artistry, we date this pin to have been created between 1910 and 1915.

Silver Horse and Carriage Watch Pin featuring Marcasite 

 

The artisans chose sterling silver for the pin’s setting. When you open the carriage, you gain access to the watch, which runs beautifully. Sixty-two marcasites stud the horse as well as the carriage. The silver coloration of the stones beautifully plays off the slighter lighter Sterling silver of the setting. This pin is certain to garner a lot of attention – particularly when you reveal the watch portion of the design.

3-D Trotter Horse with Jockey featuring Yellow Gold and Enamel 

 

This gorgeously designed pin relies on textured enamel for a good portion of its appeal. The jewelry maker chose 18k solid yellow gold for the body of the horse, carriage and rider. The reigns are made of white gold. When you look closely and touch the pin, you will notice that the wheels of the trotter actually turn. Multi-colored enamel accentuates the hooves and the jockey’s body. At a length of 1 ¾ inches, this piece is suitable for daily wear or for special occasions.

Yellow Gold Designer Pony Pin featuring Ruby

 

Made by Cellino, this 18k yellow gold pony dazzles the eye with its careful detail work. Meticulous hand texturing gives depth to the mane and body of the pony. A 2.2mm red ruby is the eye. From top to bottom, this pin measures 1.22 inches. The hooves are fully polished gold. A beautiful piece. If you have a teen who is a horse lover, this might be a wonderful starter for her vintage jewelry collection.

Reverse Carved Quartz Crystal featuring a Horse Head and Diamonds 

 

Wear this beautiful piece as a pin or as a pendant. The setting metal is 18k solid yellow gold. We trace this pin/pendant combination to the artist Pauly, who hand-carved the quartz crystal. Fifteen round diamonds weighing .60cts provide a top section for this triangular shape. If you move in circles of equine lovers, this piece will get you a lot of attention.
