Seabeans aka driftseeds aka lucky beans are produced by various members of the pea family of tree native to the tropics of Asia, Africa, Australia, and South America. Known as "driftseeds", these resilient little "beans" can float along for years in rivers and oceans before landing on a near or distant shore - frequently retaining the capacity to germinate. These pretty, glossy seeds are a symbol of longevity, endurance, and fertility, and are widely believed to bring good luck. Part of the luck attributed to them by 18th and 19th century Europeans might have something to do with their relative rareness and exoticism (you would have been lucky to come across them at all in the Northern hemisphere). This Edwardian era lucky bean bracelet is made in 15k rose gold. The links alternate between bright turquoise cabochons and little lucky beans (rendered showing the hilum, or the scar from where the bean was attached to its pod). A single full scale lucky bean set with a seed pearl dangles from the center.
