This larger and most unusual French Miraculous Medal is signed by artists JB and PCH (Jean Balme & Chambault). The design on the front in French is "O Marie concue sans peche priez pour nous qui avons recours a vous" which is "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee".
This fine replica piece is cast in solid gold bronze using the lost wax method and produced in the U.S.A. The oxidation finishing process prevents tarnishing from contact with air. Excessive skin oils may darken the backside of the medal. It is also best to not wear gold bronze in water. A polishing cloth is included so the medal can be polished to the original appearance. You would not damage the medal by contact with water since it is solid gold bronze (not a plating), but it may darken and need additional polishing.
Please message me if you would prefer a different length chain. The rolo chain is a high quality gold plate.
The medal is 1 and 1/8 inch high (almost 1 and 1/2 inch including the bail).
This medal is available in .925 sterling silver, bronze, shiny gold bronze, antique gold bronze, and antique gold plated. This is a link to view all of these finish options. https://www.etsy.com/shop/HolyMomentsDotCom?search_query=MM1
This is a Holy Moments Original piece.
Thank you for visiting my Holy Moments Etsy Shop! This has been my personal shopping account on Etsy for years. I recently decided to open an Etsy shop and display a selection of products from my established Holy Moments on-line and show company (HolyMoments.com).
The artisan jewelry and rosaries are unique to Holy Moments. Many pieces are only a few of a kind due to limited availability of certain gemstones or hand cast items. New, exciting products are always being added to both the Etsy shop and company website.
A portion of profits are donated to the Cancer Research Institute in New York, a leader in immunotherapy research. Please read my shop story for more.
