The  Sacred Heart Lujan Necklace features an intricately carved Our Lady of Lujan medal within a flaming  Sacred Heart.  She's surrounded by Angels, with two of them raising a crown of flowers above her. We hand oxidize Her to bring out the details of this incredible medal. The original medal dates back to 1906.  

It is shown on a chain 34" long for doubling, but can be made any length you request . The medal is approximately 1.375 inches and the necklace is available in 3 lengths, 16", 18" 24  and 34 (for doubling).  It can also be ordered in the length of your choice, just notate it at checkout.  The sailor clasp in the front allows the medals to be removed so you can wear other charms on it.   

Please note the picture shows the 34" length doubled.    The Sterling clad chain  Medieval Chain is chunky, but not overbearing with a hammered finish cable chain and a  decorative clasp that allows it to be removed and other medals added.  You can wear it doubled and short,  mid length or as a long layering piece with your other Whispering Goddess necklaces.

History of Our Lady of Lujan: 

The Luján image was made in Brazil and sent to Argentina. Tradition holds that a settler ordered the terracotta image of the Immaculate Conception in 1630 because he intended to create a shrine in her honor. After embarking from the port of Buenos Aires, the caravan carrying the image stopped at the residence of Don Rosendo Oramas, located in the present town of Zeylaya. 

When the caravan wanted to resume the journey, the oxen refused to move. But, once the crate containing the image was removed, the animals started to move again. Given the evidence of a miracle, people believed the Virgin wished to remain there. The image was venerated in a primitive chapel for 40 years. Then the image was acquired by Ana de Matos and carried to Luján, where it currently resides. Pilgrims worldwide have traveled to see Her and have received special graces, favors and miracles.
