This golden pendant adorned with enamel depicts St Christopher and the baby Jesus.
Known as the patron saint of travellers St Chrisopher is one of the most popular Christian figures of the Middle Ages. The story goes that as a strong and burly man, Christopher dedicated his life to assisting travellers across a treacherous river. One day a small child asked to be carried across, but when the man placed the child on his shoulders he found him to be inexplicably heavy. After fording the stream, the man placed the child down safely. Jesus revealed himself and told St Christopher “You have just carried the weight of the world on your shoulders”.
The St Christopher Pendant with Enamel guards travellers and represents strength and selfless kindness.
