St Christopher and Madonna and Child Gold Pendant
St. Christopher, whose story draws on both religious teachings and Ancient Greek mythology, is considered the patron saint of travellers.
A story often told by older generations, he is often depicted as a man of significant physical stature. He devoted himself to helping travellers across a dangerous river where people often drowned. One day, a child approached him and asked to be helped across. St. Christopher obliged. However, as he entered the water, the river rose and the child's weight grew and became extremely heavy. It was only by great exertion that St. Christopher safely delivered the child to the other side. When St. Christopher asked the child why he was so heavy, the child explained that He was Christ and when he carried Him, he also carried the weight of the whole world on his shoulders.

SISTER jewellery is made of 24k Gold-plated 925 Sterling Silver. Gold plating naturally wears off over time, revealing the silver beneath. Avoid contact with fragrances, lotions, rough surfaces and cleaning agents, especially chlorine as it can permanently damage or discolour your jewellery. Make sure your skin is dry before putting on your jewellery. Always remove your gold plated jewellery in the shower, when swimming or exercising and store it in a dry and air-tight place. Clean it gently with a soft cloth only and avoid rubbing. Unlike mass produced jewellery,handmade pieces will almost always have imperfections and each piece will never be identical to another. This uniqueness is part of the beauty of handmade jewellery.
As Christophers caring the child it means to me, protection and help what I needed as my partner died on Christmas. It will also be a medal to remember him always
Sehr schöne Kette. Vielen Dank!
The shop's really communicative, and kept me apprised every step of the way! The pendant is solid, and very detailed, lovely work by the artists.
Der Schmuck wirkt (und ist wahrscheinlich ) sehr wertig und ist mega schön gefertigt. Ich muss mich zurückhalten nicht einmal alles zu kaufen. Ich hab die chunky Ohrringe und so eine chunky Kette und nun noch ein Medaillon mit dem heiligen Christopherus. Kann ich nur weiter empfehlen. Super 🤩
