A good quality 18ct gold tiepin of a horseshoe that was retailed by the famous firm Hancocks, circa 1890. It says rather grandly on the silk inside the case  “Jewellers and silversmiths to the Principal Sovereigns of Europe”  Mr Charles Frederick Hancock established his firm in Bruton Street in 1849. Dealing in the finest jewellery, silver and gemstones Hancocks quickly built a good reputation. Within a year the company had been granted a Royal Warrant by Queen Victoria and was soon counting many of the principle sovereigns of Europe as patronsIn 1856 Queen Victoria entrusted Hancocks with the making of the newly introduced Victoria Cross, the highest military award for gallantry in the British armed forces, an honour that we continue to uphold today. This horseshoe tiepin has been set with a good ruby, two old mine cut diamonds and two pear shaped emeralds. All our tie pins come with a stopper at the end of the pin.
