Owls are majestic and magical creatures. However, in many cultures they have traditionally been associated with a darker, more witchy side and were thought to symbolize bad omens and death.
Thankfully, that malevolent perception changed during the Victorian era when owls began to make their way into children's nursery rhymes.
Soon, these beautiful birds were everywhere -- adorning lamps and andirons, decorating library buildings and, of course, popping up in jewelry motifs.
Many Victorians wore owls as a symbol of wisdom and protection. This one is special because it also has some luck on its side!
Handcrafted in high quality 950 silver with outstanding repoussé detailing, this gorgeous ring features 18k gold accents on the owl's face. It also has a charming 18k horseshoe and clover on each side of the band to bring the wearer good luck.
