What is La Presentosa?

The classic Presentosa  is a symbol of old Abbruzzese traditions. In ancient times La Presentosa, was usually given  in the form of a pendant as a sign of friendship, affection and as an amulet. It also represented a token of love. In fact it was also given by the groom's parents to the future bride. Even today it represents a tribute that wishes happiness and everlasting love.

It became famous when the poet Gabriele D'Annunzio described it in his masterpiece “The Triumph of the Death” as a large filigree star with two hearts linked by key or ribbon. This jewel was often given to young women as a promise of love. The name Presentosa comes from presente, present or gift, which evolved into Presentenza and Presentosa in the local dialect.
