Real 4-Leaf Clover Shamrock Pendant!

 Real 4-Leaf Clover Shamrock Pendant! So did you know that each leaf of a clover represents something. The first is Faith, second is Hope, third is Love and the fourth is Luck! So a 4-leaf clover is good luck! They say there are 10,000 3-leaf clovers to every 1 4-leaf clover.
