A beautifully designed French medal depicting the iconic angel of Raphaël, as seen in the Sistine Chapel, is suspended from my signature mixed metal chain. Using oxidized sterling silver, and 14kt gold filled beads and wire, the chain is hand fabricated and gives the sweet medal a modern feel. A single aquamarine briolette, wrapped in 14kt gold filled wire is an additional charm to accent the sweet cherub.
The medal is antique French, from the early 1900's, and was created with a special technique. The company that manufactured these in the 19th century invented a process for gold fill that was so good that it often is mistaken for solid gold. Even after a hundred years or so, their pieces show little sign of wear. The reverse of the medal has a lovely design, as well.
Please see the additional photos of the medal layered with other pieces available on my site, which are not included in this listing, but sold separately.
