On the back, in Latin, is "A HERI HODIE SEMPER" which means "Christ, Yesterday, Today, Forever".
This fine replica piece is cast in .925 sterling silver using the lost wax method and produced in the U.S.A. The antiquing finishing process makes this piece very low maintenance. This medal is not stamped 925 or sterling because it is identical to the original antique. It will test as .925 sterling silver.
The crucifix is 1 and 1/8 inches high by 7/8 inch wide.
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.
