Diamonds are the best loved precious stones since time immemorial. Women would gladly have them for anything. Italian horns with their long history as charms bringing good luck and warding of evils, combine with the precious diamonds to form a remarkable combination.
In ancient times, people strongly believed in the evil eye superstition, which was thought to have harmful influences on the sexual powers and fertility of men and women, fruit and harvest yields, nursing mums and even milking cattle. For protection from all these evil influences, people sought the protection of the moon goddess by wearing her horns. The moon goddess had great influence on the people of Italy and Europe before Christianity arrived in the region. These horns were mostly made of silver as silver was closely associated with the moon goddess, however natural corals were also used as horn amulets. When Christianity took hold in the region, the images of the moon goddess were replaced by the images of the Virgin Mary, but the horns continued to be in use and are still worn today. These horns, which were worn as amulets only in the past are now being worn for other reasons as well. For Fashion!!! The Italian horns have become considerably popular and are now in vogue.
