St. Lucia is one of the brightest ornaments of the church of Sicily. She was honoured at Rome in the sixth century among the most illustrious virgin and martyr, whose triumph the church celebrates on December 13th. St. Lucia is often painted with the balls of her eyes laid in a dish: perhaps her eyes were defaced or plucked out, though her present acts make no mention of any such circumstance. In many places her intercession is particularly implored for distempers of the eyes. — Rev. Alban Butler (1711–73). Volume XII: December. The Lives of the Saints. 1866.
She is one of eight women explicitly commemorated in the Canon of the Mass.

St Lucia Sterling Silver Pendant
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 Pendant
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. Total content of Gold is 1/20 of the weight of the medal.
14 Karat Gold Pendant
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 gives 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 detergent-free soap and a soft brush.
18 Karat Gold Medal Pendant
This item is also available in 18K Gold.
