The neatest sterling silver antique replica Saint Christopher Medal dangles from a 1.5mm oxidized sterling silver wheat (spiga) chain. A lobster clasp closure completes the piece. The medal is in the shape of a shamrock and has "St. Christopher Protect Us" on the backside. Beautiful depth and oxidation on this piece!
St. Christopher is known as the patron saint of travelers. He was one of the "Fourteen Holy Helpers" and was born with the name "Reprobus". The name Christopher means "Christ bearer" and was given to him by Jesus after carrying the Child Jesus across a river.
This fine replica is cast in antiqued sterling silver using the lost wax method and produced in the U.S.A.
The necklace is 22 inches long. The medal is just under 1 inch. If you would prefer a different length, please contact me.
