Saint Placidus (also known as Saint Placid) was a disciple of Saint Benedict. He was the son of the patrician Tertullus, was brought as a child to St. Benedict at Sublaqueum and dedicated to God as provided for in chapter 69 of the Rule of St. Benedict. The feast day of the martyr saints was not in the Tridentine Calendar, but was included in the General Roman Calendar from its 1588 to 1962 editions for celebration on October 5th, the feast day of the two monks who were disciples of Saint Benedict of Nursia from their boyhood, Saint Maurus and Placidus.

Sterling Silver St Placidus 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 St Placidus 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 St Placidus 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.
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.
