The "Relique" Necklace features a historic, antique (C. approximately 1700) pendant. The front depicts the Assumption and crowning of the Virgin Mary into heaven. The reverse features an enthroned Virgin Mary Queen of Heaven. The "Relique" Necklace also features a smooth-polished pink sapphire "charm" and an accompanying vintage, "Ava Maria Gratia Plena" Virgin Mary medal (The reverse has the image of the grotto at Lourdes). All three treasures hang from a single Japanese Akoya pearl and a long, hand-linked chain of faceted moonstone rondelles. Two oval faceted pink sapphires have been hand-linked near the 24K gold vermeil toggle clasp for a lovely "pop" of color at the nape of the neck. The result is a dramatic combination of antique lore, elegant gems, and a fun, easy-to-wear combination of metals.

Length of Pendants (Including the Akoya pearl "drop"): 2 5/16 inches long
Antique Virgin Mary Medal: 1 1/4 inches long
