Jewelry is a popular purchase because of their beauty. But many pieces of jewelry are gifted and worn because it is believed that they bring good luck to the wearer. The true efficacy of a piece of jewelry in bringing good fortune can never be completely established scientifically. But there have been thousands of people who have reported change in fortunes after starting to wear a particular piece of jewelry. In a very broad way, jewelry is said to bring good luck either by having the metals in a particular shape or represent a particular object, or by wearing jewelry which contains certain gemstones. Let us look at metal jewelry in slightly more detail.
The use of lucky charms to ward off evil or to bring in good fortune has been popular for many decades. Jewelers have now begun to adopt those shapes into their jewelry designs in order to replicate the positive effects. A few examples are the wishbone, the horse shoe or the four leaf clover. These objects are providing the shape for making the pendants in necklaces, so that the wearer can enjoy the good luck they bring. An interesting thing aside is to know about the stories of why these icons were believed to bring good luck. The horseshoes were first hung by people outside their doors to the Stone Age, when evil goblins were known to stay away from such houses. The four leaf clover has a backstory from the Bible, when Eve carries a four leaf clover from the Garden of Eden. Other lucky shapes are the elephant or the number seven.
The use of gemstones for good luck is an entire chapter in itself. Different gemstones are associated with different benefits, of which some are believed to bring untold good fortune to the wearer. Every month of the calendar has a gemstone associated with it.
