Lucky Horseshoe Charm Necklace
A horseshoe fixed in the upright position has long been regarded as a receptacle for any good luck that happens to be floating by.
Its usage is said to stem from a 10th century story in which an English blacksmith by the name of Dunstan (who would eventually become a saint) encountered the devil himself, who approached him with the request for a horseshoe for his hoofed feet. Dunstan obliged, but to the devil’s surprise attached it while it was sizzling hot. Howling in pain the devil begged him to remove it, and Dunstan agreed under one condition: that he keep away from him and anyone who was to affix an upright horseshoe above their home’s doorway, to which the devil complied.

Evil Eye Necklace
Another ancient icon possessing formidable power against the wicked is the evil eye. Mentions of the talisman are common in ancient Greek and Roman texts. The evil eye refers to the menacing glares cast by ill-wishing individuals, such as those spawned by a bout of jealousy or (a modern-day version) perceived bad driving. Ancient peoples viewed this as more than a simple look: a bona fide curse with potentially grave consequences. The evil eye symbol was brandished as a shield against this vile glare.
