Big vintage 18k Gold Italian Horn Pendant. This 1970s pendant is unisex in style and a great talisman piece in used in the Italian culture to ward off the evil eye. It is a hollow horn with a highly polished finish.
The horn also known as a Cornicello is signed 18k and Italy on the bale. It has been safely tested and is guaranteed to be so. One side of the pendant is perfect the other side has a dent and tiny ding (see photos). Since it will lie on one side on a chain we figured it was still worth offering due to it's size.
The pendant measures 1 1/2" long with the bale or 1 1/4" not including the bale. It measures 1/4" across the widest section of the horn and weighs 2.5 grams.
Many of these horns are owned and passed down through generations of family. This one was a acquired by such a family and is circa late 1970s gifted for a high school graduation gift.
This is a handsome bold pendant that displays well. A great gift for someone special.
