I’m not really what you’d call superstitious, but I’ve always found some comfort in good-luck charms. I recently came across these beautiful talismans from Pyrrha, which empower, celebrate and inspire. They come in lots of different themes and are handcrafted using authentic wax seals and imagery from the Victorian era, and are available in sterling silver or bronze. I, of course, was immediately drawn to the cat-themed ones. The one called Autonomy (which is $189) features a self-confident cat and comes with a card that reads, “Intelligent and self-assured, the cat featured on this talisman is symbolic of one who values independence.” There’s also an engravable version ($275), which allows you to add your own special sentiment.
