The Christo Rey & Sacred Path Wrap set brings your two fabulous pieces for an excellent price. First, the Cristo Rey is an amazing double sided holy medal that features Our Lady of Guadalupe and Saint Michael. It is one of our most treasured finds. The original medal dates back to 1682 when it was cast as a token of gratitude to be given to the generous patrons who helped build the "Templo Expiatorio a Cristo Rey" - the early basilcia in Mexico City created to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe. It was started in 1680 and completed in 1709.
We acquired the original medals from a monk who held it in his collection for generations, it was passed on to him by another holy man. It is a symbol of the divine protection of the Virgen de Guadalupe and Saint Michael. The combined power of the two is palpable. We have paired it here with simple Black Jet and clad in Sterling Silver. The original medal is bronze and had remnants of paint on Her garments.
The Sacred Path Wrap Necklace is made to journey with you on you life path as a long necklace, double wraps necklace or wrap bracelet. This remarkable charm necklace measures 36" long and features Vintage Reproduction charms with variety of Old World Madonnas and a San Benito Medal focal point in the center and a medal on the toggle to show when double wrapped.
Among the medal and Madonnas are a couple of Saints, a vintage Saint Benedict cross, Saint Anthony holding Infant Jesus and Saint Christopher too...it's well armored. This necklace can be doubled with a charm showing on the extender in the front or down the back when worn long. Pairs well with our other Sacred Designs. Old world craftsmanship is clearly evident and the love and devotion to the Holy Mother is palpable.
