Blessed Virgin Mary Praying Necklace - Renaissance - Vatican Library Collection


A vintage Mother of Pearl Pendant with the image of the Holy Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary praying. There are rectangular clear Swarovski crystals at the 4 cardinal positions in the filigree border. This necklace is from the discontinued stock of the Vatican Library Collection.

This figure of Mary in prayer is adapted from manuscripts in the Vatican Library. Seen above Mary's head is a Nimbus, which represents eternal life, all on a background of mother of pearl. The pearl is a symbol of purity in Christian art with its origin and reference from the Gospel of Mathew.

The pendant measures approx. 1 1/4" in width and slightly over 2" in height including the bail. The Vatican tree seal is on the back of the pendant – Gold Plated

It hangs on a heavy 28" long chain which also has a Vatican tree seal charm.

Mailed in a gift box (which is slightly damaged) via USPS Priority Mail - Insured for safety and so that you can track your package on-line.

The Vatican Library Collection contains authentic recreations inspired by the historical masterpieces found within the library. Some are reproductions of actual works of art and others are inspired by the architecture and the paintings in the library. Made in the USA!
