Cornicello Charm (Lapis)
Sculptural and ornate, the cornicello is an Italian amulet featuring a twisted horn shape to protect against the curse of the evil eye and bad luck, as well as promote strength and fertility. Traditionally red and made out of coral, we have redesigned tradition, creating our own cornicello out of lapis. Lapis was used by the Egyptians and Babylonians for amulets to protect against evil.
There’s a key distinction between the evil eye, which is a curse induced by envy, and the evil eye amulet, which dispels the curse.
