About Our Lady of Guadalupe:
On the morning of December 9, 1531, a native American peasant named Juan Diego saw a vision of a maiden at a place called the Hill of Tepeyac, which would become part of Villa de Guadalupe, a suburb of Mexico City. Speaking to him in his native Nahuatl language (the language of the Aztec empire), the maiden identified herself as the Virgin Mary, "mother of the very true deity"[ and asked for a church to be built at that site in her honor.
Historically the devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe did not lack clerical opponents within Mexico, especially in the early years, and in more recent times some Catholic scholars, and even a former abbot of the basilica, Monsignor Guillermo Schulenburg, have openly doubted the historical existence of Juan Diego. Nonetheless, Juan Diego was canonized in 2002, under the name Saint Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin.
About Miraculous Medal
In 1830, at the Headquarters of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, in Paris, France, the Most Holy Virgin appeared in three opportunities to a humble and pious novice, Sister Catherine Labour̩. On the three opportunities, Catherine saw the Most Holy Virgin, received messages, and was treated with loving and maternal attention.
After Sister Catherine overcame all the obstacles and contradictions that the Most Holy Virgin had predicted to her, in 1832 the ecclesiastic authorities approved the striking of the medal. Once the medal was struck, its diffusion was evident.
They were so many and so abundant the miracles obtained through her, that it was called the MEDAL that cures, the MEDAL that saves, the MEDAL that works miracles, and finally THE MIRACULOUS MEDAL.
It is carefully shipped in a beautiful gift bag and organza pouch, bubble wrapped and well protected.
A lot of my jewelry is made with silver plated and gold plated solid brass or any other metal. It will tarnish or darken over time because the silver reacts with oxygen in the air. This is perfectly normal, but you can remove any marks by gently polishing the metal with a soft dry cloth. ‰۬‰۬
Please store necklaces by suspending them to avoid kinks or bends in the wire.‰۬‰۬
Store your earrings, bracelets and rings into the organza pouch.
Many of my items are made with glass beads, so they can break or chip if dropped onto a hard surface.
