Antique figa jewelry is known around the world, particularly in Italy and Brazil, and vintage figa amulets are popular with collectors worldwide. Their meaning has evolved through the ages from something offensive, to a symbol of good luck and prosperity. The gesture it portrays is reputed to be so ‘obscene’ that it scares away evil! Whether you believe it is an unpleasant gesture or a protective talisman, it still carries relevance today. Wear it on a chain or on hoops, and carry good fortune wherever you go!
