The mano figa is an ancient symbol that goes deep into human history several thousand years. The figa has been interpreted to symbolize many different things to varying cultures, but its strongest association is rooted in Etruscan Italy.  

Legend states that in ancient Rome, the mano (meaning hand) figa (meaning fig) was made by the head of each household to ward off evil spirits of the dead. Oftentimes, amulets were hand carved into the figa shape and given to infants to wear around their necks as protective talismans. Later, the mano figa evolved to take on a different meaning; one representing the feminine, fertility, and desire. 

We sought to honor this age-old token by bringing it into the modern world. Crafted out of bright and cheerful coral, these miniature figa charms are a small, yet mighty emblem. We strung them along with solid gold 1.5” seamless hoops, a pairing full of power. The warm tones, lively movement, traditional symbolism, and incredible craftsmanship have instilled these earrings as our new in house favorites.
