This is a sterling silver antique replica of a very rare St. Michael the Archangel medal that was made in France with words in Latin. I am blessed to own this original and be able to share with you.
The medal is available by itself, on a sterling silver wheat chain or on an adjustable suede leather lace.
The front of the medal has Latin "Michael pugnavit cum dragon et fecit victoriam" which means "Michael fought with the dragon and prevailed".
The back of the medal has Latin "Quis ut deus" which means "Who is like God". The Prayer to St Michael (shown in photos) is included in the gift box.
A gorgeous, unique piece with the sides a bit thicker than the middle of the medal which gives it beautiful depth. It measures just under 1 inch diameter.
For the suede lace option, camel brown 3mm suede leather is adjustable up to 26 or 30 inches long. The sterling silver antique replica slider bead allows the leather to be worn as a shorter length. If you would prefer a longer leather lace, please let me know.
For the chain option, this medal dangles on a 1.5mm oxidized sterling silver wheat chain with a lobster clasp closure. Please contact me if you would prefer a different length chain.
These fine replica pieces are cast in .925 sterling silver using the lost wax method and produced in the U.S.A. The oxidation process eliminates the need to polish this piece. This medal is not stamped 925 or sterling because it is identical to the original antique. It will test as .925 sterling silver.
This medal is available in sterling silver, bronze and antique gold bronze. Please see this link to view the options: https://www.etsy.com/shop/HolyMomentsDotCom?search_query=latin+st+michael
Prayer to St. Michael:
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
A Holy Moments® Artisan 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.
Exactly like shown. Beautiful piece. Came on time. Thank you so much! I’ve been looking for a long time for a pendent of Saint Michael the archangel.
