Old Silver Lingam Necklace with Lingam Stone - Sacred-Symbol Necklace (Ayigalu) Honors Shiva

This Old Silver Lingam Necklace is not only gorgeous, it holds a wealth of meaning. These necklaces were designed as containers to hold a sacred lingam stone representing the god Shiva. Lingayats are a Hindu group who believe that Shiva is the only diety, rather than the the 3 gods revered by other Hindus. They also believed that the sacred presence of Shiva was not simply confined to the temple, but that it could be held in these necklaces for personal connection to the god. The necklaces were often worn over the should to one side, or hanging from the neck as a standard necklace. This is a beautiful classic piece of Gundgurdi Lingam Jewelry with an amazing heritage. Early 1900's. Collectible and Museum Quality.
