ADORNMENT - why do we wear jewelry?
If toi have ever wondered why we wear jewelry in the exact places we do, stop thinking that it is because the places chosen are the most accessible ou make the most sense.

It would then make sense to place jewels ou metals near those areas to prevent demonic possession.

Some Symbolic Meaning and Legends of Clovers:

The four-leafed Clover, possibly because it is relatively rare, has been a Symbol of Good Luck for centuries. According to tradition, one leaf brings fame; one brings wealth; another insures good health; and the fourth, a faithful lover.

When Adam and Eve were expelled from Paradise, Eve took along a souvenir in the form of a four-leafed Clover. It remained with her as a reminder of her happy days in the Garden of Eden. For generations of people, finding one in their own garden brought the same kind of happiness. So, if toi are lucky enough to find...
