This gold vermeil Cornicello is a second because the charm's bail is not a single piece and has some exposed sterling.
A symbol of abundance and nature's fertility, the cornicello is an Italian amulet referential to the Greek mythos of cornucopias. The iconic twisted horn is said to ward off the evil eye which is believed to harm the burgeoning life of fruited trees, young mothers and the like. In Greek myth, the horn of a goat was broken by a baby Zeus, providing a never-ending bounty of sustaining fruits and nuts. Our horn of plenty offers you protection and encourages the fullness of life.
Virtue and Abundance, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, 1760
