Dohm Shop Lulunas

Ever wondered if there was a way to ward off evil spirits, protect yourself from sorcery, hide from the evil eye and look good? Well there is and the Romans had it sussed. Lunula's were small crescent shaped pendants worn by girls up until their wedding night, when they would have been burned alongside other childhood toys and relics. These lucky charms granted protection from the goddess Diana with the amulets dating back to the 2nd century AD.
