Big vintage 18k gold horn referred to as the cornicello, an Italian talisman. The Italian culture believes these horns ward off the evil eye. Many 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.
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. It weighs 2.5 grams. It is a hollow pendant that is a unisex style and has a large bale to accommodate up to a 4mm chain.
The horn is crafted of highly polished 18k gold. It is signed 18k and Italy on the bale. It has been safely tested and 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.
A wonderful large pendant in 18k gold.
