Cimaruta necklace, Cimaruta jewelry, Italian witches amulet, stainless steel pins, purple tie dye glass beads, silver toned hammered O rings


I decided to make some more ornate Cimaruta necklaces since the others sold so well.

This Cimaruta necklace in silver-toned metal features pink, blue, and purple die dye look glass beads wired on stainless steel eye pins. The beads are connected with silver-toned jump rings.
The necklace features three silver-toned hammered O ring connectors.

The focal piece is a silver-toned metal double-sided Cimaruta amulet.

I added a silver-toned metal chain to complete the necklace and added a sturdy lobster claw clasp for easy access.

The default length of the necklace is 20 inches. The part that hangs down will add another few inches.

I can make this any length you'd prefer. Just add your request in the comments at check out or message me through Etsy.

The charm, chain, clasp, and o rings or connectors are silver-toned metal-plated alloy.
The eye pins are stainless steel.
The jump rings are aluminum.

A Cimaruta is an Italian Folk Magick amulet commonly worn to keep bad spirits away.


More info about the Cimaruta:

The following article, written by Jerry Finzi, appears on

The cimaruta is a very old Italian portafortuna (good luck charm) rooted in the lore of the ancient Pagan religions of Italy. It can be worn around the neck or hung above an infant’s bed to ward off any evil. Like many of the lasting ancient symbols and beliefs, the cimaruta design eventually took on certain symbols of Catholicism.

One example of a Christian addition to the design is the appearance of “the sacred heart” of Jesus. However, ancient Roman charms did include a heart symbol, which may indicate that the heart on the cimaruta isn’t an entirely new addition.

The traditional cimaruta is fashioned after the leafy sprig of rue, which is an herb that is highly featured in Italian magic and lore. The branch of the rue is divided into three stems symbolizing the three forms of the goddess Diana. Rue was a sacred herb for Diana.

Various charms appear on the rue design, each having its own meaning. The main symbols are the moon, serpent, and key. These represent the goddess as Hecate (the key), Diana (the moon), and Proserpina (the serpent).

There may also be a rose; a hand holding either a wand or a sword; a flaming heart; a fish or dolphin (a nod to Diana); an owl (to flirt with the Devil); a plumed medieval helmet; a vervain blossom (a flower from Italian fairy ore); a cherub; a rooster (watchful guardian); and an eagle (able to see evil coming from far away).

One cimaruta, for example, might bear the collective imagery of a key, dagger, blossom, and moon. The cimaruta is worn nowadays more by women than men.
