Spuligadentes pendant in silver and coral filigree


Spuligadentes pendant made entirely by hand in 925 silver and embellished with authentic Corallium rubrum

The Spuligadentes was a pendant in the shape of a heart or star with many points, from which two opposite curved elements branched out externally, one with the pointed end and the other with the end in the shape of a scoop or spoon .

The first end was used to clean the teeth, just like a toothpick , the other instead for cleaning the ears , like today's cotton buds. The basic idea of religious practice is that to get in touch with the sacred one must be pure ; therefore in order to speak with God and listen to his voice, one must have clean teeth and ears:they are therefore tools that help to have a better contact with God.

These pendants also had another function, that of amulets to keep evil spirits away.
