Lapis Figa & 18k Gold
It is rare to find a lapis figa and even more so to find one with such well-defined carving. This piece becomes even better with the 18k gold cap with double teardrop bails for a balanced drop off your favorite chain.
The Mano Figa is a symbol that dates back thousands of years. The thumb, tucked between the pointer and middle finger represented fertility and womanly power, closely tied to the goddesses Luna and Venus. You can see it's a rather sexy gesture that wards against evil and brings out your feminine attributes and protects you against the evil eye.
