St. George, the patron saint of England, is depicted on this incredibly detailed medal. In the scene, he is slaying a dragon 🐉 and the back reads, “In Tempestate Securitas” ...safety in the storm. The reverse of the medal has a scene of a ship. The image was created and signed by Edmond-Henri Becker, a renowned French medalist.
St. George is associated with protection, so wear this medal as a personal talisman.
The medal is antique French, and high quality gold filled. 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.
Suspended from my signature oxidized sterling silver chain, with 14kt gold filled accents, the medal is modern and wearable.
~18" in length ~Medal is 18mm in diameter, and does NOT include the bale portion ~Closes with a 14kt gold filled lobster claw clasp
