Make A Wish

Posted on February 19, 2014 | Posted under February 2014, Jewelry

Wishbones are known to bring good luck or are after given to others as a symbol of friendship. But where did this so-called luck brought by a wishbone come from?

The legends of the wishbone came from civilizations dating back to the 4th Century. Etruscans, Romans... Britain, America held turkey or chicken wishbone contests where they would pull the dry turkey or chicken bone until it snapped, making the "lucky break"; believing the winner's wish or dream would come true. In today's culture, many see the wishbone as a symbol that will "catch" their dreams, bring good luck, and make their wishes come true.
