Saint George Cable Necklace by Whispering Goddess - Gold

Whispering Goddess

Saint George is the Patron Saint of Horsemen, Knights and All Who Call on him for protection.  This fabulous medal is a  reproduction of a vintage 1940's Cavalry Chaplains medal.  The iconic imagery shows St. George on horseback, thrusting his lance at a dragon with the inscription: "S. GEORGRJS. EQUITUM PATRONUS." (St. George, protector of knights). The other side has a ship with a taut sail on a rough sea and Christ asleep on the deck with two terrified apostles. A wind blows through a small cloud into the sail. The inscription: "IN TEMPESTATE SECURITAS. (Safety, or security in the storm) a prayer of confidence that All Will Be Well.   Medal origin is Barcelona, Spain.  

Saint George is paired with multi color Tiger Eye with flashes of Gold, Red, Black and Green.  Tiger Eye is a stone of strength and courage and was worn by Roman soldiers on the battlefield for strength.  We find it  paired perfectly with Saint George. 

The medal is approximately 1.75 inches and the necklace is 18" inches long with a toggle front. It can be made in any length.  Please note this listing is for the necklace only, the earrings are available here.
