Does anyone who considers themselves spiritual, religious, or otherwise, wear any sort of charm, artifact, symbol, etc to express their faith/philosophy/belief/culture?

If so, please share with us what it is, and what it means to you, and any history/background about it.

For me, it's my Silver Ankh.

I first purchased this for $5US in Egypt, during my first visit there, and I had been wearing it ever since. I have lost it a few times, only for it to find its way back to me each time.

Eventually, it broke in half (just under the wings), so I had it melted down and bonded with a stronger silver-steel mesh. I have had it ever since; almost 15 years now.

PEACE

I wear a brass, presented to me by a brother named Hru Ankh Ra (Semajh) Se Ptah, 1981 in Brooklyn New York.

I was given a Kemetin name, and was taught to never let my Ankh dull, that by keeping in shining I would be reminded was strong in spirit and strive for perfection and oneness with the creator

I have a silver Ankh with gold trim.. i found it in my great aunts jewelry box.. she died before i was born but ive worn it every sense.. I literally wear.. on my skin that is The Eye of Ra... on my wrist.. i carved this in at 14.. and had it prefesionally tuched up 2 years ago.. the ra... is a reminder there is no pleasure w/o pain.. no light without dark.. the Ankh.. or course is sortas as a tribute to a great woman i never knew.. and my life strength and overall health... and the ability to overcome.. becasue she wasnt able to!
