Star anise increases success in both lucky endeavors and the attraction of a new love interest … it is commonly associated with love spells.
Rosemary is often used in love potions … symbolic of loyalty, friendship, remembrance and faithfulness,
Clove is said to be commonly associated with love potions as it is a compelling herb used to help guide potions to their intended effects with its power and potency.
Honey is meant to sweeten the relationship.

According to Alice Hoffman in “The Rules of Magic” this is the most basic and reliable love potion:
"Franny had taken to sitting on the back staircase to eavesdrop …
The most basic and reliable love potion was made from anise, rosemary, honey, and cloves boiled for nine hours on the back burner of the old stove. It had always cost $9.99 and was therefore called Love Potion Number Nine, which worked best on the ninth hour of the ninth day of the ninth month.
… Aunt Isabelle knew her niece was there on the stairs taking notes, but said nothing. She had a special fondness for Franny. They were alike in more ways than Franny would care to know."

I have sand casted each of the charms in sterling silver and then had them lost wax cast in sterling silver before finishing them up back in my own little studio ... hand crafted jewelry for when how it's made matters. The love potion number nine combination of charms were assembled with Alice’s permission.
And disclaimer ... this is just an idea of a love potion that promises only the fun of wearing it and not actual magic.
