Description

Crescent Moon Shaped Pendant with relief, replica in Sterling Silver. 

In ancient Rome children used to wear a medallion that protected them from evil forces and spirits.

The girls had around their neck a moon-shaped amulet, the lunula, which had to be carried up to the marriage, the moment in which it was removed, together with the other typical objects of childhood. They had long multi-turn gold chains with crescent moon (the lunula, as a Christmas gift), a wheel or both in the same necklace.

Good fortune amulet.
