What brings you luck? Some believe their luck lies in talismans. A talisman is any object ascribed with magical powers intended to protect, heal, or even bring good fortune and fertility to those in possession of it. Your magical object could take the form of a ring, a Celtic knot, or a special symbol.


Overview

Many Italians, for example, have long believed that a small horn-shaped amulet known as the cornicello could ward off the evil eye. What’s your talisman? Draw inspiration from mystical worlds to manifest luck, strength and comfort for the days ahead. We all need it after a year like 2020!
