In the Catholic religion, it is believed that wearing a medal with the image of a saint will bring protection and answer prayers. The practice is not limited to Catholics alone; other Christian denominations also hold these talismans as sacred.

This medal, depicting the Blessed Mother, the virgin Mary, mother of Christ is delicately crafted in silver and Vermeil (gold over silver). A lovely piece Kathy picked up in France, it looks divine when worn with other amulets at the neck or wrist!
