🎁 The Magic of the Wishbone

Did you know? The wishbone has a fascinating history. Back in the early 1900s, it was a symbol of love. People hung wishbones above their doors, hoping it would help them find a partner. Nowadays, it's all about luck.

The Tradition of "Wishbone Luck"

Here’s how the magic unfolds:

  1. Dry the Wishbone
  2. Two people each grab an end, holding it in an upside-down V-shape
  3. Both make a silent wish
  4. On the count of three, pull until it breaks. The longer piece grants the wish!

It’s like a secret wish pact. 🤫 And the phrase "lucky break"? Yep, it comes from this very tradition. Even the Pilgrims took this custom to America, where Thanksgiving turkey wishbones are thought to be super auspicious.

Historical Fun Facts

  • 17th-Century Britain: A game called the Merry Thought involved balancing the wishbone on your nose and shaking it off with a wish.
  • 19th Century: Young unmarried women used wishbones to predict who would marry first. Wishbone matchmaking! 💕

So, wearing a wishbone necklace isn’t just about style—it’s a symbol of your most special wish. Each time you put it on, say your wish out loud. It’s a constant reminder of your goals, a symbol of faith, and a promise that your wish might just come true. A generous gift filled with hope that the receiver’s wish will find its way. 🎁🌟💫

📦 Shipping: The Glamorous World of Parcel Patience

Alright, my fellow sparkle enthusiasts, let's talk dispatch and delivery. Picture this: I’m a one-woman powerhouse, working tirelessly to bring you the finest jewellery. I aim to dispatch your glittering goodies the same day (because I'm just that efficient). But here's the kicker—being a boutique operation, my stock is as limited as my patience for non-sparkly things. Most of my treasures are shipped from my legion of talented smiths and suppliers to me on order.

UK Domestic Shipping: Fast but Fashionably Late

For my lovely UK-based customers, your sparkles will typically waltz to you in about 5-7 business days—quick, but not quite instant gratification. I’m not Amazon! Think of it as joyous anticipation before the big reveal!

International Shipping: The Waiting Game

For my fabulous international friends, I need you to channel your inner zen master. Shipping times can vary wildly, anywhere from 5 to 30 business days. Why? Because customs clearance is a thing. Patience, darling. Good things (and sparkly ones) come to those who wait.

Out of Stock? Not Out of Luck!

If the piece you’ve fallen in love with is out of stock, don’t fret! It’s available for order with a lead time of 4-10 weeks, depending on which of my brilliant suppliers is crafting your new favourite accessory. Just drop me a line about your heart's desire, and I’ll do my absolute best to meet your needs.

✨ Ready to Add a Bit of Sparkle to Your Life?

So, there you have it. Whether you’re waiting a few days or a few weeks, remember: great things (and truly fabulous jewellery) take time. Now, who’s ready to add a bit of sparkle to their life? Visit our shop for more dazzling pieces that’ll make your heart sing and your neck shine!
