Gothic Antique St Anne with antique crucifix festoon glass necklace
Saint Anne was the mother of the Virgin Mary. According to the apocryphal Gospel of James, Anne and her husband Joachim, after years of childlessness, were visited by an angel who told them that they would conceive a child. Anne promised to dedicate the child to God's service. She is also the Patron Saint of housewives, grandmothers, cabinet makers, unmarried women, and women in labor. This antique Sainte Anne Medal is set in an antique brass setting that has golden hues. Layered onto another brass setting that holds an antique Roma crucifix and four antique jet glass beads from an old rosary in Edwardian chandelier form. . This long and beautiful Holy pendant hangs from mercury glass beads that form this delicate festoon. The beads reflect colors like aurora borealis but the color is deeper and the stones are a grey eerie color like in Labradorite. The necklace will go up to 16" long around the neck with an additional 4" for the French medal drop. There is an antique rondell that holds the pendant on that sparkles like tiny bright lights that create a halo over the Saint.
