14k Yellow Gold Salted Legend of the Pretzel Charm. The pretzel is 1/2" in size and weighs approximately .8grams. It is not 3d (it has an open back).

As far back as the 4th century, the Pretzel had a deep spiritual meaning for Lent. In the old Roman Empire, they shaped bread in the form of crossed arms, for in those days they crossed their arms over the breast while praying. They called the breads "little arms" (bracellac), from the Latin word. The Germanic people later coined the term "Pretzel". In many places of Europe, pretzels are served only from Ash Wednesday to Easter, thus keeping the ancient symbolism alive as a reminder to pray.
