"Being superstitious is for ignorant, not being it is unlucky".
This ring represents the corno, classic superstitious gesture. It indicates the act of repelling bad luck, as if the hand was an animal that hits the bad luck away.
Do you know why turning the horns downwards drives away bad luck while turning them upwards it means betrayal? Legend tells that Pasifae, Minosse's wife, wanted to save the bull that should have been sacrificed to Poseidon. The god, offended, made her fall in love with the animal, and from their union, the Minotaur was born. Form that day in Crete the upwards horns meant betrayal.

....if you really are superstitious there is the Positano ring to match!
