Solid sterling silver dice charm featuring two six-sided dice, ready to roll and change your fortune! Dice and their forerunners are the oldest gaming implements known to man. Sophocles reported that dice were invented by the legendary Greek Palamedes during the siege of Troy, but they may be even older than that. There are scholars who claim that dice have dots because they predate any standardized number notation.
This silver dice charm is is a product of the 1930s, when so many people desperately needed a change in fortune. Many would strike out on their own to “roll the dice,” as they say. Farmers, bootleggers… Even Bonnie and Clyde took their chances.
