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 more elaborate than most! Crafted of 18 karat gold, with Art Deco motifs, it has been embellished with diamonds and paste aquamarine stones. The graceful figure of Mary is delicately and stylistically carved from bone. A Spanish inscription on the reverse translates to: 'The Greatest Love', and is dated August 30, 1933. A beautiful keepsake that will resonate for anyone who practices Christianity!
