A separate line in the Beirut collection is a variation on the horseshoe. This symbol of luck is present in the collection for a specific reason: it represents the Ottoman Empire’s old stables in Beirut’s downtown area, under the arches which, at the turn of the 20th century, became the jewelry souk, of which the Mouzannar family was part. This was the starting point of a refined and flourishing art of jewelry-making of which the Maison Sélim Mouzannar is the contemporary heir.
