Beautifully detailed yellow gold horse shoes encircle a black onyx intaglio of what looks to be an image of Mercury, the Roman god of commercial gain and luck in finance. What could be a better gift for the horseman (or horse husband) who is also in finance? The shoes are made with strikingly fine detail, including the “lucky 7” horse shoe nail pattern & they include the heel and frog of the horse. An unusual find, these cufflinks are secured with a round, hinged back, which is also gold clad. The inner frame & backing are made of brass or other similar material. Measures 3/4”.
