the story

There's something about a vintage vice charm that feels naughty and nice at the same time! 

This rare charm from circa 1930s - early 1940s is in great shape for it's age.  In the shape of a box of Lucky Strike cigarettes, the 14 karat gold construction makes it a treasure to behold.  The front features hand painted enamel resembling the iconic brands logo before its 1942 redesign when the background was changed to the white we know today.  And, with a little movement the metal cigarettes inside pop out making it a dynamic piece!  

Legend has it the name Lucky Strike comes from rumor that some packs contained marijuana cigarettes thus getting lucky if receiving one.  Even though it's probably not true, we like this cheeky myth anyways. 

A sweet charm add to your charm bracelet, wear as a dainty necklace, earring, or stacked with your favorite pieces.
