The Seven Sorrows of Mary are beautifully remembered with this lovely necklace. The sterling silver center is an antique-reproduction medal of the heart pierced with seven swords, each representing the Blessed Mother's sorrows: The Prophecy of Simeon, The Flight into Egypt, The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple, Mary meeting Jesus as He carried His Cross, The Crucifixion, Mary receiving the Body of Jesus from the Cross, and Jesus' Body being placed in the tomb. Delicate sterling silver beads are linked on the 18" sterling chain, and placed on the necklace drop just above a small sterling cross. Designed and crafted by jewelers in the USA. From the CRA Collection.
