Vintage 14kt & Enamel Four Leaf Clover Charm
Four leaf clovers are a unique type of clover variety in comparison to the commonly found three leaf species. Traditionally, they are believed to bring good luck to whomever finds them, particularly when they are found by chance. Each of the four leaves bears its own special meaning, representing faith, hope, love, and luck. Throughout the ages, the image of the four leaf clover has become a recurring motif in jewelry, dating back to as early as the Victorian era. Today, they are still collected as popular charms that serve as symbols for good luck.
