Saint Benedict Choker
Choker assembled on a 18k yellow gold plated bronze chain. San Benito Abad medal in bronze with 18k yellow gold plating.
The Saint Benedict Medal reminds the faithful who carry it with them the constant presence of God and his protection. In the 19th century there was renewed fervor for the Saint Benedict Medal. In the written works of Dom Prosper Guéranger, Abbot of Solesmes, and Dom Zelli Iacobuzzi, monk of Saint Paul Outside the Walls, the origin and history of the medal are carefully studied. From this last monastery, located in Rome, a focus of Benedictine radiation, the devotion to the Medal also spread. The most popular representation of it is the so-called “jubilee medal”, designed in the Abbey of Beuron, and minted especially for the Benedictine Jubilee in 1880, commemorating the 1400 years of the birth of Saint Benedict Abbot.
