Figa charms are as interesting as they are stylish. These little hand charms originated in Etruscan Italy, and are both beautiful and a little bit naughty. The term Figa means fig, and is a nod to female sexuality in the Italian language. Originally worn as a symbol of fertility and abundance, the charm’s meaning evolved into good luck by the Victorian age. These playful little charms are often holding objects and wearing jewelry, and this delightful specimen is doing both. This figa is made of jet, and has accents of 18k gold. The hand has gold fingernails, is wearing a bracelet, and is holding a key. It is in excellent condition and is wonderful for everyday wear.

Wear it With:
Your favorite Italian handbag, and a knowing smile.
