Description

Crescent Lunula pendant engraved reproduction in 925 Silver

In the Rome ancient, the bulla was an amulet that was made to wear by their children throughout their adolescence. Worn around the neck like a medallion, the bulla was made from different types of material depending on the economic class to which the family belonged. Its main purpose was to protect the child from evil forces and spirits.

The girls were made to wear another type of amulet, the swing ; this was worn until the marriageable age, at which time it was removed, together with the other typical objects of childhood. Worn with long multi-turn gold chains, crescent bulla (the lunula, Christmas Day gift), wheel, or both in the same necklace.
