This is an amazing & fabulous piece- a tiny hand carved ivory hand with wonderful details of fingernails, & lines on the palm, is set into an 18 K rose gold cuff & wearing an 18K ring & bracelet set with very small turquoise stones. Small but potent! It is the gesture of Mano Cornuto-an Italian gesture to protect against the Evil Eye. It was also used by ancient Lunar Goddesses, again as a protection against evil. This antique lucky charm measures just 15/16ths of an inch long by 1/4 inch wide & looks wonderful combined with other charms as I show in my last picture.
