    Default Can anyone identify what this jewelery is?

    I cross posted this from "Western" because I think we get a wider audience here. Does anyone know what this is called and what it's used for? Very pretty IMO. A friend got it as part of a lot and thought it looked "horsey" so he asked me.

    There was a vintage kind of jewelry, a kind of sweater clip- a decorative connector for cardigans when they were worn open and over the shoulders. That's the only thing I can think is close- but it wasn't a western trend.

    I'll bet you're right. Just coincidence that it happens to have a horse theme. Thanks.

    It does look like a cardigan clip,but much nicer than any I've ever seen. Gorgeous piece of jewelry! You could probably have a jeweler redesign it to a more contemporary style and use - just how often does one need a cardigan clip any more? Perhaps it might be nice as part of a necklace.
