St. Patrick’s day is observed every year on March 17th to celebrate Irish culture and the legacy of Saint Patrick, Patron Saint of Ireland. Supposed to commemorate the death of St. Patrick in the fifth century, this holiday has been celebrated in Ireland for over 1,000 years.
Originally a Catholic holiday, St. Patrick’s Day was initially celebrated with church services, as well as treated as a break in the season of Lent, during which exceptions could be made to the rules of fasting and observers could dance, drink, and feast on colcannon.
St. Patrick’s Day remains a popular holiday in many countries, especially those which boast a strong Irish heritage. A celebration of such heritage and the beautiful Emerald Isle, many of the magical and symbolic elements of Ireland are worn or displayed with pride. Green clothes, chocolate gold coins, Guinness, and lucky charms are among the many icons at play on this special day.
To complement your own festive getup, here are some of our luckiest pieces of jewelry to bring good fortune your way this St. Patrick’s Day!

Wishbones are one of the oldest lucky charms, dating all the way back to the Etruscan Civilization and the belief that the divine power of bird bones could predict the future.
Now, you can carry your own wishbone and channel its power without having to actually go and collect any bones!
