The cornetto is an amulet worn to protect against bad luck and malocchio, which is Italian for evil eye. It is often called corno portafortuna which means lucky horn in Italian. The cornetto is a symbol of luck and success. It is known to be modeled after the cornucopia, which is also known as the horn of plenty and considered to represent abundance and prosperity. In Roman mythology, the cornucopia became an attribute of several Roman deities. Roman goddess Abundantia and Fortuna, the goddess of luck, are depicted in several paintings holding a cornucopia.
The cornetto earrings are designed and inspired after Roman traditions and are meant to be worn as a symbol of good fortune.
