Vintage and New Milagros Catholic Necklace


On this necklace made of Milagros, I added a unique handcrafted pierced heart milagro with chalice on center of heart representing Sacred Heart of Jesus.
I also added smaller milagro charms, a couple of sterling silver and stabilized turquoise charms including a large howlite cross and a two sided medal of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Includes several peruvian beads as well. Chain is vintage

MILAGROS

Milagros "Miracles" are small devotional charms that are traditionally used in most Latin American Countries. These votives are placed in small shrines, church, nichos, retablos, saints or altars.

Milagros also refers to an ancient aspect of Hispanic Folk Culture: Small silver or gold votive offerings.

A person attaches a Milagro to a saint for a special request of a miracle for a particular aliment of the body.
