A plain miraculous medal becomes a lovely accessory in this lacy filigree setting. The wording, “O, Mary, conceived without sin, Pray for us who have recourse to thee” is in Latin. The setting is open in the back, so you can see the M surmounted by a cross, and the twin hearts. The set medals, about 7/8″ dangle from a Niobium wire. Total length around 1 3/8″.
Niobium jewelry findings are good alternatives to precious metals. Findings made with niobium are hypoallergenic because they do not contain any nickel alloys, so they are safe for someone who is allergic to jewelry with nickel, copper, or other base metals and alloys. This includes stainless (surgical) steel, sterling and low karat gold.
