It is widely believed that the meaning of clovers pre-dates Christianity, going back to a time when clovers were used as Celtic charms. The Celts once extended across Ireland and into much of Western Europe and the Celtic priests, the Druids, considered them a sign of good luck, allegedly protecting against evil spirits and warding off evil / bad luck.

Nowadays, clovers are generally recognised as symbols of good luck and clover jewellery can be gifted as lucky charms. According to legend, with a four-leafed clover, the four leaves represent hope, faith, love, and luck because, in Irish Christian tradition, the Shamrock (or 3-leaf clover) represents the Holy Trinity: one leaf for the Father, one for the Son and one for the Holy Spirit. When a Shamrock has a fourth leaf, it represents God’s Grace, and so encapsulates everything that a person could want. Christian legend has it that Eve carried four-leaf clovers from the Garden of Eden.

Children in the Middle Ages believed that they could see fairies if they carried a 4-leaf clover.

The mystique of the clover or shamrock continues today and it is considered an ideal present to wish a friend or colleague good luck for a special occasion or event.
