Glass Pendant, Swarovski Crystals Our starry glowing orb is crafted of 24K gold plate with sodalite, Czech glass, and Swarovski® crystals. It pays homage to an ancient amulet pendant in The Met collection. Wear this chic adaptation for a touch of timeless verve. An amulet is a small object that a person believes will magically bestow strength or protection. The original adornment was made by the Hunnic or Frankish people in the 4th to 5th century. Worked in gold and inset with a striking sphere of clear rock crystal, the ancient pendant was likely imbued by its owner with special powers.
