Large Roman Lunula pendant

This beautiful and large Lunula pendant is the reconstruction of an original piece. Since the original was hung on only two simple rings, I have supplemented the pendant with a matching, also Roman jewelery eyelet. The piece is by its size, the attractive shape and the high-quality workmanship a real gem.
The size of the Lunula amulet is 41 x 47 mm, the eyelet has an inner diameter of about 6mm. The Lunula pendant is made by hand from solid 925 sterling silver and delivered in a jewelery case with certificate.

 

Lunula Pendants

Pendants in shape of a half moon are common amulets in the iron age and during the roman empire. They were found in nearly all known provincial roman settlements, graveyards and military fortifications since the 2nd century AD. As archelogical finds show, they were also used by celts and germans.
The moon-shaped pendants were called lunulae after the roman moon goddess Luna. Especially woman and children trusted in the magical power to avert danger and disaster.
Another interpretation is the connection between the moon phases and the female menstruation, so the moon is seen as a female star and symbol of female power and identity. It symbolizes intuition, creativity and sensuality.
