I’m not sure if this is the right forum for this, so please do not hesitate to move if necessary.
I like jewlery and accessories of all kinds. I recently came upon a fair trade shop that sells jewelry and accessories from a variety of countries and cultures. Each item is handmade by people in the countries and each purchase helps provide a way for the artisans to make a good living to support themselves and their families.
I’m a bit worried though because I recently learned that certain pieces of jewelry from particular countries are actually amulets that have to do with magic or superstition. I don’t know how to tell which pieces of jewelry are just jewelry and which ones are amulets. So, my question is, when shopping for jewelry, how do I know if a particular thing is just a pretty piece of jewelry or something superstitious that has to do with magic or the devil?
