The 2012 Summer Olympics have come to a close, but the memories and achievements of this years athletes are sure to last for a lifetime. Being an athlete takes a lot of training and hard-work, and for some it also takes a bit of luck in the form of a good luck charm. Olympic runner Sanya Richards-Ross wears a bullet necklace given to her by her mother, which has become a good luck charm that she wears during all her races, “I remember the one time I didn’t race with it I finished third,” she said. Swimmer Dana Vollmer bought a pair of elephant stud earrings as a good luck charm, which she wore when she scored the world record for the 100-meter butterfly race. Jamaican Runner Usain Bolt’s lucky necklace was apparently stolen after running his 200-meter victory lap, but that didn’t stop him from dominating on the track, so sometimes the luck is all in your head. Still, it doesn’t hurt to add a good luck charm to keep you going!
Our 2012 Olympics Jewelry collection has many sports related charms that will hopefully bring a little luck to your game. A four leaf clover is the perfect way to add a bit of luck to your look and with our Briley’s Lucky CZ Pave Four Leaf Clover Bracelet, you can bring fashion and luck to your wardrobe. Maher’s Sterling Silver “Good Luck” Clover Necklace is another great way to add the lucky leaf to your look.
Since the London games started we’ve been on the lookout to see what jewelry the athletes would be wearing. Athletes like to get dolled up too, so we were pleased to see many accessorized with earrings and necklaces. Gymnast Aly Raisman wore beautiful cluster earrings that we think are absolutely gorgeous. Our Facebook friends agree! We asked what they think of Aly Raisman’s Olympic earrings and 100% of those who responded love the earrings, so we’re working on getting them in stock immediately. The red, white, and blue earrings are a patriotic way to add fashion to any look! Olympic jewelry comes in many forms, some athletes like to keep things simple and simply top off their look with a cross necklace like the one Maria Sharapova occasionally wears during tennis matches. Our Maria Sharapova cross necklace interpretation is a great way to add faith and luck to your attire.
Go for the gold whether you’re competing or not and get stylish with our Olympic jewelry items. Our Olympic charms range from $19.99 – $45.00, but the inevitable luck is priceless!
