10 Pieces Of Horse Hair Jewelry That We Love
There’s a wide variety of things one can do with horse hair. From cello and violin bows to bracelets and keychains, this material is more popular than people think. But jewellery — and horse hair jewelry — has a touch of personality and intimacy in it that other usage doesn’t have. Here are 10 pieces of horse hair jewelry that we love and you can buy! Presented in no particular order.
1. This beaded horse hair bracelet
These beautiful bracelets are custom made. They come with metal beads and clasp, and the hair can be your own horse’s or from the available horse hair. Made with tail hairs only. When ordering, you’ll have to provide your wrist width, as it’s not easily adjustable.
2. This sterling silver ring with inlaid horse hairs
This ring is very elegant and well made. The ring is sterling silver and has a classical design. The hair is encased in a glass dome, for a very interesting effect. They come in sizes 7 and 8, and you may order with your own hair or with the hair the designer has in stock.
3. This stunning ring
This ring is finer than the usual fare. Unlike other options, this ring can be sterling silver or 9ct gold, including rose gold. You may pick the stone from a range of available options, such as different types of turquoises and opals. The horse hair goes in a braid around the ring, and it can be your horse’s hair or the designer’s own stock.
4. These horseshoe earrings
This clever design is unique in its own way. The horse hair goes in a fine braid around a set of horseshoes, which you wear as earrings. As with others, this can be either your horse’s own hair or stock. Materials can be gold, rose gold, sterling silver. In custom order, you may ask for diamonds added to the gold for extra luxury.
5. Chestnut horse hair bracelet
This one isn’t a custom order. This braided horse hair bracelet has a silverplated clasp and are simple but extremely sweet. Other options and colours exist in the store, but the shade of red in this one is very fetching.

This beautiful and simple piece is a nice teardrop design. It can be made custom, with a braid of your own horse’s hair (they also accept cow hairs).
7. This Woodland Ring
This woodland-style ring draws inspiration from the European olive trees. The ring’s branches are cast from actual olive branches and a fine braid of horsehair. The hair may be your own horse’s, or stock. This ring comes with a charm, made from your horse’s picture, and it may come with or without a “stone”, which is, in fact, a clipping from your horse’s hoof!
8. This horse hair barrette
This horse hair barrette is very charming. The glass beads add a hint of colour and elegance to the braided hair. Comes in different colours. Not customizable.
9. This sterling silver horse hair pendant
This beautiful and original piece is sure to make a striking addition to anyone’s collection. The sterling silver wire makes a graceful spiral, with a horse hair braid tightly woven around it. The fixture is also wire, no glue, which means it is water-resistant.
