Earrings called ‘sciacquajje’ (from the ancient term scioccaglio) or palombelle
made with embossed and chiseled slabs with oscillated pendants;
they were worn daily by the peasants of Abruzzo and Molise because
with the tinitinnium of the pendants, negative influences and bad tongues were kept away.
These jewels most likely come from the laboratories of Agnone, Scanno or Pescocostanzo.
Information taken from the texts of Adriana Gandolfi, traditional goldsmith in Abruzzo.
