As the New Year approaches, charms are prominent on gift lists as a way to wish our loved ones good luck and prosperity in the New Year.

The New Year's Eve charm tradition is an age-old custom found in many cultures. Ancient Greece was one of the oldest cultures to use charms. In Greek mythology, luck was often associated with specific deities, such as Tyche, and Agathos Daimon, a personal guardian spirit. People often wore talismans bearing the symbols of these deities to attract their favor.

Charms and symbolism

Pomegranates, horseshoes and eyes are some of the dominant symbols of New Year's Eve.

The pomegranate was a symbol of fertility and abundance, commonly used in Ancient Greece. It was often depicted in artwork and jewellery, and was used as a common motif on coins, vases and other objects. People also placed a pomegranate at the entrance of a new house to bring good luck and blessings to the occupants of the house. The pomegranate seeds and their color are associated with abundance and success. One of the most common charms is the horse shoe. It is considered a symbol of good luck, protecting the eye from evil. In the old days it was believed that the horseshoe brings good luck because it is made of iron and magical powers cannot pass through the cold metal. When someone found a horseshoe on the street, they were considered very lucky. The horseshoe was hung on the inside of the front door of their house, usually with the opening facing upwards, so that luck and good energy would be concentrated there. 

Charms are still popular, adding a touch of magic to the new start. Today's charms combine classic symbols with new materials and modern design approaches.
