Precious cameos and antique pendants on sale in Abano Terme

Pendants can consist of religious symbols, or of antique cameos, but they all share allegorical meanings, which can be more or less explicit, and which make them different from the other kind of jewels.

At first used as ornaments similar to necklaces, pendants were very much in vogue for men, who wore them as a symbol of their social membership, their religious affiliation, or the origin and story of their family - such as the tokens with the symbols of royal families.
