Sterling Silver Our Lady of Loreto Medal (18.5 MM)
Our Lady of Loreto refers to the house in which the Virgin Mary was born and where the Annunciation occurred. Legend says it was miraculously moved from Nazareth by angels first to Tersato, Dalmatia in 1291, then Recanati, Italy in 1294, and finally to Loreto, Italy where it has been for centuries. Not surprisingly, she is the patron saint of pilots, airmen and flight attendants. The long life of the house led also to the patronage of builders and construction workers. There exists another more scientific theory. According to Papal archivist Guiseppe Lapponi, in 1291 a family by the name of Angeli saved the bricks of the Holy House from the Muslim invasion. Allegedly, in 1294, Niceforo Angeli sent the bricks to Italy as a wedding gift for his daughter. During recent excavations beneath the House of Loreto, several hundred coins were found, two of which are connected to the Angeli family.
It’s fitting this is finely crafted in silver, since the spiritual meaning of silver symbolizes strength, spirit, grace, divinity, wisdom and purity. This can be worn as a symbol of your faith as your favorite fashion statement. Sterling silver is reflective and mirrors the soul, it is said it brings calm and balance to the wearer. Shaman believe silver gives the wearer protection from negativity and evil; it is known as the metal of love and healing. Sterling Silver is 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper. Copper is silver's best companion since it improves the hardness and durability of silver, yet allows the silver to retain its beautiful color.
The rising price of silver makes this, quite simply, a great investment all around.
