Assigning luck to an object

There are generally three ways we give luck to an object.

  • Through association: A penny you had the day you met your partner.
  • Through symbolism: Like a sock with four-leaf clovers or black cats printed on them.
  • Magical contagion: The idea that there is some essence or physical property that can rub off from contacting it.

Research shows that lucky charms have real, positive effects. But unlucky things have their own kind of power.

According to research, secondhand engagement rings are much less likely to sell if the listing indicated that the previous owner had been through a divorce or a broken engagement. One explanation is that we believe that various properties can be transmitted through contact.
