Spanish for miracle, a milagro is a votive offering, often a small charm in the shape of a body part, given in thanks for prayers answered. Especially common are prayers for healing and protection. Cast from Latin American originals, this collection of over 225 designs was assembled by a Peace Corps volunteer in the 1960s and has been enlarged by recent finds. Look for such favorites as a pregnant torso to wish someone a safe pregnancy, a tongue to ward off gossip, or a heart to encourage the lovelorn. All of these sterling silver milagros include a bail, loop, or hole so as to be worn.
