Signed Trifari Sand Dollar Pendant Necklace, Vintage 1960s 1970s Beach Theme Jewelry

$24.00

Signed Trifari Sand Dollar Pendant Necklace, Vintage 1960s 1970s Beach Theme Jewelry and offered by TheJewelSeeker on 21VintageStreet.com . The san dollar is often a collectible beach find, but simulated sand dollars are also a popular jewelry design. Mythology include two interesting ideas: Christian mythology, suggesting that the five-pointed “star” in the center of the top of the sand dollar’s test is a representation of the Star of Bethlehem that guided the wise men to the baby Jesus. The five openings in the test are said to represent Jesus’s wounds during his crucifixion: the four wounds in his hands and feet and the fifth in his side. On the underside of the sand dollar test, it is said that there is an outline of a Christmas poinsettia; and if you break it open, you will find five small bones that represent “doves of peace.” These doves are actually the five jaws of the sand dollar’s mouth (Aristotle’s lantern). Other lore about sand dollars references the washed-up tests as mermaid coins or coins from Atlantis.
