Virgin Mary Keep the Faith Necklace, Pink Handmade Catholic Jewelry

Item Description

A perfect jewelry gift for the woman of Catholic faith, the KEEP THE FAITH necklace features a stunning two sided Blessed Virgin Mary pendant, along with faceted rose quartz gemstones and sparkling Swarovski crystals.  The meaningful pendant was cast in the USA from lead free pewter to resemble a rustic Liberty coin - but one with an inspirational message.  On the front side, raised above the background, is a lovely depiction of the Blessed Virgin Mary in prayer surrounded by a flowing frame.  A starburst is above her head and plants are at her feet.  The background has stars along the bottom edge with a backwards 1890 date at the very bottom.   “Keep the Faith” is inscribed on raised bands on the opposite side of the pendant along with a raised five-petaled rose (representing Mary as the Queen of Heaven).  The Liberty coin religious pendant was given a patina and then polished to bring out the details, the raised areas have a lovely glow against a darker background (much more pronounced in real life than what the photos show).  A heavy duty sterling silver jump ring connects the pendant to the main body of the necklace.
Because of the feminine beauty of the Blessed Virgin Mary, faceted natural light pink rose quartz rounds and glittering Swarovski crystal bicones were used.  Rose quartz was chosen since it is a gemstone that is known as the “stone of love” and is believed to help teach forgiveness and tolerance.  The faceted gemstones are in groups of three (representing the Holy Trinity) separated by small sterling silver beads.  Three Swarovski crystals are found on each side, clear crystals with a metallic aurora borealis finish that radiates a variety of colors depending on the angle of the light.  A beautiful sterling silver hook clasp set with a leaf design securely finishes the necklace.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the KEEP THE FAITH necklace is a special piece for the woman who adores unique, one of a kind Christian jewelry.  Imagine this beauty on yourself or on someone you love, a constant reminder of the wearer’s devotion to the Blessed Virgin!

 ***  For a better understanding of the relative size of the Virgin Mary pendant and rose quartz gemstones used to create the KEEP THE FAITH necklace, please be sure to check out photo # 6 for a size comparison with a quarter.

The Blessed Virgin Mary is the Divine Mother, the Mother of Jesus / God.  Rose Quartz is often called the “love stone” as it is said to open the heart to all forms of love; it is said to help teach forgiveness and tolerance.  Even though man made, crystals (glass) carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  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 KEEP THE FAITH 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!
