Who is Saint Barbara?
Saint Barbara is one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers. Her association with the lightning that killed her father has caused her to be invoked against lightning and fire; by association with explosions. She is the patron saint of firefighters, sailors, artillerymen and anyone who is in danger of sudden death. A young virgin who chose a violent death rather than deny Christ; she is a saint in the highest tradition. St. Barbara’s name can be invoked on any occasion with the assurance that her virtue will protect us from evil of all forms. Her feast on December 4 was included in the Tridentine Calendar, having been introduced in Rome in the 12th century.

About Bliss Christian Jewelry
Sterling Silver Saint Barbara Medals
Our Sterling silver medals are at least 92.5 percent pure silver. Copper is typically combined to improve the metal’s hardness and durability without compromising the quality and look of the silver.
Sterling Silver medals are marked with a quality stamp to ensure the content of the silver. Federal law mandates that the quality stamp must include the maker’s mark. You will find either “Sterling Bliss” or “Sterling BLI” on the back of our medals – both acceptable quality marks.
14 Karat Gold Filled Medals
14kt Gold-filled, also known as rolled gold is made up of a solid layer of 14 Karat Gold bonded with a base metal, such as brass, on both the front and back of the medal.
14 Karat Gold Medals
Our 14 Karat Gold is composed of 58.3 percent pure gold and is ideal for fine jewelry. Other alloys, such as copper, are mixed in with the gold to give more of a red warm hue. This also give the metal strength. Since gold is a natural element, it is very durable. We do recommend removing the jewelry if it may come in contact with chemicals. To clean gold jewelry, use warm water and ddetergent-freesoap and a soft brush.
Bliss Manufacturing stands behind its’ jewelry and honors a lifetime guarantee. Our medals are sprayed with a lacquer coating to protect the finish. Should any of our medals, crosses, crucifixes, or chains tarnish, or have defects, we will either repair or replace free of charge. This guarantee takes precedence over our standard return policy.
