A fantastic pair of antique Edwardian era 9ct Rose gold lucky bean cufflinks.

They feature a modelled rose gold lucky bean to one end and are attached to a ball and barbell anchor with a short gold chain.

The cufflinks are stamped and marked in various areas throughout.

Rich rose gold tones give them a warm and regal feel whilst the lucky bean adds an element of playfulness.

Why are beans lucky though I hear you ask? And it's not Jack and the beanstalk inspired though that would be fun too!

They were presumed lucky after so called 'sea beans' were found washed up on beaches from far away lands, these beans very often still grew when planted and were therefore deemed to be lucky.

Later they came to represent fertility, abundance and more but they were still revered in the Victorian and Edwardian eras as a lucky charm.

Wearing these would have instilled a little good luck on the wearer it was thought so imagine what events they may have attended where good luck was needed!

These are hollow so lightweight and easy to wear.
