The mano cornuto is an Italian Symbol Jewelry design of ancient origin. Mano means “hand” and corno means “horn.” The charm represents a hand gesture in which the index and little fingers are extended while the middle and ring fingers are curled into the palm. The reference is to the horned head of an animal.
Italian Symbol Jewelry is Stylish
Whether made to be worn against evil or worn as an amulet, the mano cornuto is used for magical protection against the evil eye. In this it resembles other hand gestures and hand images that ward off evil, including the hamsa hand, the eye-in-hand, the mano fico (fig hand), and the interlocked thumb gesture. This Italian Symbol Jewelry is primarily found in Italy and in America among descendants of Italian immigrants. At Skystone and Silver LLC we have several styles of the Italian Symbol Jewelry ( mano cornuto) the Italian hand symbol.
Italian Symbol Jewelry has meaning
The cornuto, corno, or cornicello is an Italian Jewelry Symbol of ancient origin. Corno means “horn” and cornicello means “little horn” — these names refer to a long, gently twisted horn-shaped amulet worn in Italy to protect against the evil eye. Cornicelli are usually carved out of red coral or made of gold or silver. The type of horn they are intended to copy is not a curled-over sheep horn or goat horn but rather like the twisted horn of an African eland or something similar. Over the years they have become rather stylized and now look less like a natural animal horn than they once did. Italian Symbol Jewelry is regionally popular and is primarily found in Italy and in America among descendants of Italian immigrants.

One of our good customers asked us to make a custom pendant with a tumbled Apache Tear. This creates a dilemma for most of us because each side has a different shape and size. A Custom Pendant like this creates a nightmare in trying to come up with a way to mount the stone, show it off, and make it look nice enough to wear. Without doing the custom pendant mounting in wax and then casting it, which is what we did not want to do.
Custom Pendant in Silver
A pattern was made so that the custom pendant would display its translucent qualities, then the metal was cut for the custom pendant to allow light to shine through. It was then given a pre-polished and the stone was mounted.
Custom Pendant is a hit
Our customer loved our idea for mounting this stone in the custom pendant. This technique will serve us well for other tumbled stone custom pendant pieces.
Apache tears are rounded nodules of obsidian (volcanic black glass) with diameter from about 0.5 to 5 cm. An Apache tear looks opaque by reflected light, but translucent when held up to light. Apache tears are usually black, but can range from black to red to brown. Our custom pendant would have a black Apache Tear
The name “Apache tear” comes from a legend of the Apache tribe: about 75 Apaches and the US Cavalry fought on a mountain overlooking what is now Superior, Arizona in the 1870s. Facing defeat, the outnumbered Apache warriors rode their horses off the mountain to their deaths rather than be killed. The wives and families of the warriors cried when they heard of the tragedy; their tears turned into stone on hitting the ground.
A custom pendant such as this is rewarding for both the artist and the customer. This customer found this apache tear when on a trip and wanted to commerorate his trip with a custom pendant.

Many jewelers state that they do jewelry repair, and some of these jewelers send their jewelry repair work to trained jewelers like Rick Sindeband at Skystone and Silver.
Silver Jewelry Repair
Silver Jewelry can be very tricky and many shops in the Pueblo Colorado area do not have trained Silversmiths and will not work on silver jewelry. Silver jewelry takes more work than Gold jewelry to repair because in most cases stones need to be removed before the repair. Traditional heat sink methods used by Goldsmiths many times will not work with silver and can possibly damage or destroy the stones set in the jewelry. Silver jewelry also takes more heat for traditional soldering techniques, and of course the bigger the piece the more heat that is necessary. Some repairs can be done in our shop by heat-less methods without removing the stones such as earring posts.
Gold Jewelry Repair
Gold Jewelry Repair can be a very cost effective way to get a like new piece of jewelry to wear without spending the high prices of Gold Jewelry. Don’t forget that you can trade broken gold and damaged gold jewelry for your jewelry repair, and remember broken gold jewelry can be made into a new piece of jewelry without the added expense of having to buy the gold. Diamond jewelry repair is one of our jewelry repair specialties. Chain repairs , ring sizing, and most jewelry repair operations are done in our studio including watch repair.
At Skystone and Silver we evaluate every job with you to determine the possibility of success or failure based on the desired jewelry repair. At Skystone and Silver we do both Silver and Gold jewelry repair.
One of my customers recently asked if I could fashion a custom pendant out of a Pink Tourmaline he had acquired. This was a very nice and expensive stone. It was well cut and had very good saturated color with no banding. Tourmaline is a crystalboronsilicate mineral compounded with elements such as aluminium, iron, magnesium, sodium, lithium, or potassium. Tourmaline is classified as a semi-precious stone and the gem comes in a wide variety of colors. I went straight to the drawing board and decided I needed to add a stone at the bottom of the custom pendant for some aesthetic balance. He wanted the custom pendant to be very special. It was going to be a wedding present for a very special relative and the event would be happening soon.
Custom Pendant from Sterling Silver
We discussed the Custom Pendant further and he also wanted it to be made out of Sterling Silver. This stunning white metal was a very good choice for a custom pendant like this with the price of Gold being so high. I decided to make a bezel mounting instead of prong type mounting, keeping the back open to give the custom pendant plenty of light. The bail on the custom pendant needed a little flair so i decided to opened it up also. All in all this was a fun project.
Custom Pendant has a new home
The customer was very happy when the custom pendant was delivered . He showed the Tourmaline Ppendant to all his staff at work and mentioned where he had it done. He will be very pleased at the reaction he gets when he gives the custom pendant at the event. With planning Custom Pendant projects can give a great deal of satisfaction.
