From the ancient Celts dancing to their gods at Stonehenge, to the later rise of Christianity, LUCK has always played a role.  We have come to embrace all forms of luck, and if someone considers it lucky, we research it and add it to our collection of LUCKY CHARMS and let it resonate with all the other lucky items.

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT, IT'S LUCKY !!!

Evil eye charm

Blue glass beads with an eye in the middle

can be found all over Turkey, and other places like Lebanon, Greece and Albania. In Turkey they’re called nazar boncuk (“na-zar bon-jook”) and are worn by babies, kids and even adults to ward off the evil eye. That sounds scary, but it’s thought that the evil eye can simply be other people jealous of your good fortune. The charm is supposed to deflect any bad energy coming at you.

 SPAIN - The Indalo Rainbow Man featuring on Indalo art is thought to date back to 450BC having been found in the Indalo caves in Spain. The Rainbow Man is said to be a protective guardian angel and help protect individuals from evil, particularly those wearing jewelry featuring the symbol.

ITALY-Cornicello or the (little horn) is a long, twisted horn-shaped GOOD LUCK amulet used in Vatican City. Cornicello is of ancient origin in Italy, where they used it for good fortune and fertility. The charm was made of red coral, silver or gold. Cornicello’s resemblance to an eland horn was associated with strength, fertility, and virility in men.

England -  Legend says that a blacksmith named Duncan nailed a horseshoe to a horse not realizing that the horse was the devil in disguise. The devil was in great pain and Duncan only agreed to remove the horseshoe if the devil promised to never enter a house that had a horseshoe hung up. Therefore anywhere with a horseshoe is good luck because the devil cannot enter.
