Antique Sterling Christening Medals Religious Necklace

Assembled with vintage materials gathered from the flea markets and private sources of South America, this distinctive necklace was created under the supervision of master jeweler, Joseph Holland. Mr. Holland has been making jewelry for over 40 years, and many pieces are owned by museums, collectors, and celebrities alike.

Although Mr. Holland has retrired to Peru, he still has the need to create, which is why we have introduced his "Lima Collection". These pieces are exclusively for sale at Lush Life Antiques with other pieces available for viewing at

This one of a kind sterling silver necklace has a heavy 6mm chain measuring 20" long from end to end, and has 11 antique sterling christening medallions approximately 1 1/4" and under. The fronts have highly detailed bas relief designs including pansies, four leaf clovers, angels, Christ, and christening events. They are individually inscribed in raised letters on the reverse with the maternal and paternal names as well as the child's birthdate with the oldest date being 1890. These are each one of a kind and you will never see another alike. The necklace will not only garner attention when worn, it will definitely be a true conversation piece. It is in very good condition and the clasp is hallmarked 925. The medals are not hallmarked but have been acid tested for sterling silver. It has a total weight of 96.8 grams.
