Lucky diamond charms: give the gift of good fortune

Place a precious protector under the tree with our pick of diamond jewellery designed to bring you luck.

Dior Rose des Vents bracelet

What could be better at Christmas than the gift of diamond jewellery to bring good fortune? Whether her particular talisman of choice is the Hand of Fatima, a four-leaf clover or a lucky number, we have 10 great jewels, all set with diamonds, that will allow you to place a precious protector under the tree that she’ll never want to take off.

1. Chopard
Good Luck Charms rose gold and diamond pendant

The Hand of Fatima, or Hamsa, is believed to protect its wearer from the evil eye, although this rose gold version may well attract one or two envious eyes this Christmas. Rather than the traditional eye symbol at the centre of this Chopard pendant, you’ll find a delicate heart shape containing a free-moving diamond in the style of the brand’s iconic Happy Diamonds line.

2. Dior
Rose des Vents rose gold, onyx and diamond bracelet

The Rose de Vents collection features an eight-point star design that Christian Dior adopted as his lucky charm and kept close to him throughout his life. It was based on the meteorology tool called a wind rose, which was a prevalent motif at his family home, and also reflected his favourite number - eight. This rose gold Dior bracelet has a diamond at the centre of the star, surrounded by a black onyx disc.

3. Tiffany & Co.
Petals Key rose gold and diamond pendant

Key pendants are one of Tiffany’s most iconic designs, and the New York jeweller promises that they also hold the power to unlock happiness and grant access to a brilliant future. This particular beacon of Tiffany jewellery has been realised in rose gold and set with a generous blanket of round brilliant diamonds. 

4. Anna Loucah
Amulets Fairtrade gold and diamond necklace

Amulets have long been worn to protect their wearer from harm, and ethical jewellery designer Anna Loucah is bringing a modern twist to this by letting you create your own piece. Simply write to her, explaining what the symbol is and why it is important to you, and she’ll turn it into a Fairtrade gold pendant set with a single diamond. Or if you’re stuck for inspiration, choose from one of her existing designs.

6. Jennifer Meyer

8. Sarah Ho
Numerati yellow gold and diamond ring

It took Sarah Ho more than two years to create the innovative Numerati ring concept, which is designed around lucky numbers. The clever yellow gold and diamond ring looks like numbers one to nine when off the finger, but when worn, your lucky number disappears and so is a secret to you, unless you want to share it. The ring pictured here is lucky number seven, which Ho says is the perfect number for deep thinkers.  

9. Van Cleef & Arpels
Alhambra 5 Motif white gold and diamond bracelet

In 1968, Van Cleef & Arpels decided to create its own symbol of luck, the Alhambra. Designed to bring positive energy and good fortune to those who wear it, the symbol has become the Maison’s most iconic motif. This white gold bracelet has been decorated with five of these lucky charms, each set with sparkling white diamonds. 

10. Theo Fennell
Zodiac gold and diamond charm

For those of you who put your faith in the power of the Zodiac, you can now take your star sign with you wherever you go. Dotted in the hammered yellow gold surface of this range of Theo Fennell jewellery are diamonds that map out the constellations of the Zodiac. There is a charm dedicated to each of the 12 star signs, and this particular one is for Sagittarius.
