Handmade necklace with milagros and religious medals..
The chain is part of a vintage Guatemalan wedding chain
and is made of low grade silver color metal. The chain,
when used in the wedding ceremony, would be about 7
to 8 feet aroung. It would be placed around the bride
and groom in a figure 8 to signify they were joined
for eternity. I have seen the chain used in a traditional
Mexican wedding of a friend held here in Texas.
The chain has an antique silver color. Red and turquoise
beads and newer milagro charms have also been added.
Red and turquoise crosses are made of howlite, a semi-precious
stone that is naturally white, but takes to coloring.
It is often used to make crosses and skulls used in
Mexican Jewelry.. The center pendant of the Virgin of
Guadalupe is new and measures 1 1/2" long. Hook
and Eye closure. The necklace is in excellent condition
and measures 14 1/2" from center back to center
front or 29" end to end.
