Praying Man Woman Necklace, Amethyst Medieval Religious Jewelry Gift

Item Description

So reminiscent of a medieval cathedral or church window, the PRAYERS handmade necklace is a perfect gift for the woman who loves to wear unique religious jewelry.  The one of a kind necklace features an artisan-designed and hand cast pewter pendant with the rustic figure of a praying man or woman in an arch. Sparkling star cut amethyst, star cut pewter beads and sterling silver complement the pendant.  The shape of the pendant, a lancet arch, is found on many cathedrals and churches built in the Gothic style, but are very common even today. The lancet arch has many architectural uses but the point at the top of the arch also symbolizes prayers going straight to heaven.  Inside the arch is a praying figure, standing in flowing robes with hands folded at the chest. A set of thick vines behind the figure also creates a natural arch. The pendant was hand cast from high quality pewter right here in the United States. The back of the pendant, as you can see in photo # 8, has a bit of texture.  A heavy gauge sterling silver jump ring connects the pendant to the main body of the necklace.
Richly hued natural amethyst gemstone beads gives the necklace a royal feel.  The dark purple amethyst is “star cut” with triangular facets on every side for maximum sparkle.  The amethyst was placed in groups of three to represent the Holy Trinity - there are six groups on each side of the necklace.  A small sterling silver bead separates each gemstone. To separate each grouping, a high quality star cut pewter bead was used, adding even more glitter.  A hammered sterling silver hook clasp finishes the back of the necklace securely. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the PRAYERS religious necklace, which will quickly become a favorite, was created for the woman who adores ones of a kind religious jewelry.

A prayer is a solemn request for help or expression of thanks addressed to God or an object of worship.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality. Amethyst is known as the “stone of peace” because it’s said to help calm fears & reduces stress; it helps increase spirituality & contentment.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.


The PRAYERS artisan necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
