Miraculous medals have been worn as a reminder of faith and a symbol of protection since 1830, when a Catholic nun experienced a vision of the Virgin Mary wearing robes and rings of many colors, which shone rays of light everywhere, standing on a globe inside an oval frame. As she watched, the frame began to rotate, and the Virgin spoke, telling the young nun that her vision should be made into a medallion, and that "All who wear them will receive great graces."
This version is modeled after a vintage medal we found and loved. Cast in 14k gold, it is suspended on a simple cable chain that is adjustable from 16-18" in length. Designed to be worn often, like a tiny, prayerful secret, this is definitely the perfect wear-every-day, never-take-it-off piece.
- Medal measures approximately 11.5mm round.
- Handmade in NYC. Please allow 1-2 weeks production time.
