The lingling-o was worn by people in various regions of the Philippines and also all around Southeast Asia (the oldest ones are believed to be over 2500 years old). It was worn because of its “magical” qualities for fertility and prosperity, and at the same time it represented an abstract concept of the Feminine. The symbol is also considered an amulet.
