One side of this glass necklace features St Vincent De Paul and the other shows the Virgin Mary holding the Christ Child. The background is a gold foil.

This is a 1" x 3" reversible glass pendant. I have taken a more rustic approach with the silvery lead-free solder used to seal it, thus making it appear ages old. It is not waterproof, please do not wear while swimming or bathing. Clean with any dry silver polishing cloth. It will come with a simple handmade 16-19" necklace.

St.Vincent De Paul was born in Pouy, Landes, Gascony, France, to a family of peasant farmers. He studied humanities in Dax, France with the Cordeliers and he graduated in theology at Toulouse. He was ordained in 1600, remaining in Toulouse until he went to Marseille for an inheritance. In 1605, on his way back from Marseille, he was taken captive by Turkish pirates, who brought him to Tunis and sold him into slavery. After converting his owner to Christianity, Vincent de Paul escaped in 1607.
After returning to France, De Paul went to Rome. There he continued his studies until 1609, when he was sent back to France on a mission to Henry IV of France; he served as chaplain to Marguerite de Valois. For a while he was parish priest at Clichy, but from 1612 he began to serve the Gondi, an illustrious family. He was confessor and spiritual director to Mme de Gondi, and he began giving peasant missions on the estate with her aid.
In 1622 De Paul was appointed chaplain to the galleys, and in this capacity he gave missions for the galley-slaves.
In 1625 De Paul founded the Congregation of the Mission, a society of missioning priests commonly known as the Vincentians. In 1633, with the assistance of Louise de Marillac he founded the Daughters of Charity. He also fought against the Jansenist heresy.
De Paul was renowned for his compassion, humility and generosity
