Lucky Irish Penny Connemara Marble Necklace

Irish legend has it that you should always keep a one penny coin with you for luck. In old Ireland, at fairs and markets, it was common to give Luck Money. You can read the full story of Irish Luck Money below.

Usually it was a penny when a transaction had taken place. When you see a new moon, turn your Luck Penny over in your hand three times and you will have luck and prosperity.

This is a genuine Irish penny coin not a replica – set  within a Connemara marble disc. Presented on a wax cord with an adjustable slide closure.

A true piece of Ireland.

Description

Giving a Luck Penny is an old Irish tradition originally associated with the buying and selling of farm animals. After the buyer and seller agree terms, the seller would then gift the buyer a sum of money for “good luck”. In old Ireland this would typically have been a penny.

This was an important ritual because failure to give back a Lucky Penny could bring ill fortune to them both, and the Irish, being a highly superstitious people would always avoid tempting Fate!

This tradition has long since been expanded so that giving a gift of a Lucky Penny to a friend brings ‘the luck of the Irish’ to both. It is always cherished as a lucky charm and is a constant reminder of the strong bond of friendship. The tradition of the Lucky Penny is still observed in Ireland today. If you move to a new home, get married, have a new baby or even buy a new car you will be gifted some “Luck Money”to bring you luck on your new venture. The value is irrelevant, it is simply a gesture of best wishes.

The Lucky Penny Pendant provides you with the opportunity not only to acquire an important part of Irish history but are also a way for you to spread the famous ‘Luck of the Irish’ amongst your very special friends.
