Around the globe, a rich assortment of symbols is universally linked to the concept of good luck.

Horseshoes are placed above doorways as fixtures, primed to attract and capture good fortune as it arrives.
In this mosaic of auspicious emblems, one mustn’t overlook the appeal of the lucky rabbit’s foot and the serendipity associated with a heads-up penny discovery. Venturing further east, the Maneki-Neko, a beckoning cat from Japan, takes the stage as a harbinger of good luck and fortune. Collectively, these symbols weave a tapestry of positivity, radiating good vibes and uplifting energy across cultures and generations.
