For a small little spotted insect, the ladybug comes with a HUGE folklore of luck-bringing beliefs from every culture. In some societies, if a ladybug lands on you and then flies away, there'll be good weather on Sunday. In Sweden, it's believed that if a ladybug is walking on a girl's hand, it's measuring her for wedding gloves and she'll be getting married soon. In England, they believe that if a ladybug lands on you, the amount of spots on it predict how many happy months will follow.
Well, if any of these are true, wearing this Crown Trifari vintage ladybug pendant will bring you six happy months (at least), an impending wedding, AND, most important, the weather will be good on Sunday.
The green Lucite ladybug has the look of Bakelite with some marbling and six (lucky) black recessed dots. The pendant measures 1 1/2 by 2 inches (not including bail). It hangs from its original gold-tone chain that measures 28 inches around. The back of the pendant has the circa 1960s CROWN TRIFARI hallmark. It's all in excellent condition.
