Dainty Saint Christopher "Be Safe" Charm
* * SOLD * *
A dainty, vintage Saint Christopher charm, modeled in 14k yellow gold, depicting the popular saint carrying a child across troubled waters. Atop this inspirational scene, a series of concentric, machine-engraved circles expand from the center, creating the impression of emanating rays of light. The phrase "St. Cristopher look at me and be safe" encircles the central scene. This charm has a smooth border. It hangs from an oval jump ring. We love this unusual Saint Chris medal, for it's diminutive size, and for it's strange, straightforward command: look at me and be safe. Charms like this one were sold at Tiffany & Co. This one is simply marked 14k, for purity.
c. 1940 - 1950
