Victorian 18kt Coral Figa Fist & Italian Horn Pendant

SKU: 32327
A Figa is a symbol worn around the world to attract good luck to the person wearing it. It's depicted by a single clenched fist and can be made of metal, wood, stone or ivory and is traditionally thought to bring good luck only if it is given as a gift.

A spectacular and unusual coral Figa pendant from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This gorgeous hand carved piece is particularly large in size and wonderfully detailed. A coral arm extends long and is topped with a 18kt yellow gold cap that has crown-like detailing with three small turquoise stones. At the wrist rests a gold bracelet which also has three small turquoise stones. The clenched fist holds a group of multi-colored coral Italian horns, which are all capped in gold, adding special detail to the already fabulous pendant. The piece hangs from a simple bail. It would look fabulous hanging from a long gold chain and would make a wonderful addition to any collection!

Measurements: The coral Figa pendant hangs approximately 4 3/4" long and is a 1/2" at the widest point.

Condition: The overall condition of the coral pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the coral figa or to the gold and turquoise stones.
