Black Victorian Mano Figa

$ 465.00


This jet hand charm is in the shape of a Mano Figa, one of our favorite motifs around here. The Figa fist has represented many things throughout time. As a pre-Renaissance  figure the thumb, tucked between the pointer and middle finger represented fertility and feminine power. You can see it's a rather sexy gesture. As Christianity crossed the ocean to the new-world, this symbol traveled with it but took on a new meaning. It has become a charm to protect against the evil-eye and to bring good luck. 

Charm is sold without the chain unless you choose to add it.
