Sacré Coeur Wax Seal Necklace. Sacred Heart handmade from Antique Intaglio. Fine Silver Wax Seal Jewelry

This beautiful handmade wax seal silver pendant bears the image of the sacred heart, it is roughly an inch in diameter and is hung from an 18 inch handmade oxidized sterling silver chain.

This pendant is hand made in our studio from silver precious metal clay, fired in the kiln, oxidized, polished and sealed. Pendants oxidized for the antiqued look and polished for a long time to allow your design to reveal the wonderful surface textures.

Our pendants are one of a kind made entirely by hand, not cast.

This item is made-to-order so please allow up to 10 business days for your item to be completed and shipped to you.

Each item will be unique, one-of-a-kind and vary slightly in its appearance from the product shots you see displayed.

Materials: Pendant is 99.99% pure silver (.999FS) and is hallmarked on the back. Ring and chain are sterling silver.

Please note : The difference between "fine" silver and "sterling" silver is that fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. Sterling is only 92.5% silver with the remaining 7.5% being composed of other metals, usually copper. They look the same, wear & polish the same, but fine silver is more "pure" and is, therefore, more costly and often considered more desirable than sterling.

Necklace measures approximately 18 " (46 centimeters) and falls to the collarbone, meaning that you can comfortably wear it the whole day directly against your skin.

Makes a great gift for bridesmaids, flower girls, mothers, grandmothers, graduates and Holy Communions.

Should you need a gift note to be included, please let us know in the notes section upon checkout.

Jesus Christ, in his appearances to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, allegedly promised these blessings to those who practice devotion to his Sacred Heart. This tabular form of promises was not made by Saint Margaret Mary or her contemporaries. It first appeared at 1863. In 1882, an American businessman spread the tabular form of the promises profusely throughout the world, the twelve promises appearing in 238 languages. In 1890, Cardinal Adolph Perraud deplored this circulation of the promises in the tabular form which were different from the words and even from the meaning of the expressions used by St. Margaret Mary, and wanted the promises to be published in the full, authentic texts as found in the writings of St. Margaret Mary.

I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.

I will give peace in their families.

I will console them in all their troubles.

I will be their refuge in life and especially in death.

I will abundantly bless all their undertakings.

Sinners shall find in my Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.

Tepid souls shall become fervent.

Fervent souls shall rise speedily to great perfection.

I will bless those places wherein the image of My Sacred Heart shall be exposed and venerated.
I will give to priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts.

Persons who propagate this devotion shall have their names eternally written in my Heart.
In the excess of the mercy of my Heart, I promise you that my all powerful love will grant to all those who will receive Communion on the First Fridays, for nine consecutive months, the grace of final repentance: they will not die in my displeasure, nor without receiving the sacraments; and my Heart will be their secure refuge in that last hour.

The History of Wax Seals

The use of seals can be traced back to the world’s earliest civilizations.

The use of wax seals did not begin until the Middle Ages. Kings, clergy, and royal courts used them in issuing official decrees and authenticating documents. By the 13th century, the use of wax seals spread from aristocrats to the ordinary freemen. Each had their own seal, and in a time when many were illiterate, they were used in place of a signature to authenticate legal or personal documents.

The wax was pressed with a handheld stamp or with a signet ring bearing the owner’s crest or coat of arms. In fact, the kissing of a signet ring of a noble became customary as a sign of respect and allegiance. Later, monograms and novelty stamps featuring popular motifs (such as Aesop’s Fables) were used for personal correspondence and very in vogue during the Victorian era.

Though not of wax, collecting seals as Medallions also became fashionable for stops along the European Grand Tours of the 18th and 19th centuries, a tradition amongst the wealthy aristocracy. James Tassie, a Scottish engraver, reproduced many artistic works of antiquity in miniature, as well as portraitures of well-known people of his era and were highly collected.
