Plique a jour 18K Gold Mother Mary Medal
Art Deco Virgin Mary medal pendant in 18K gold and plique-à-jour enamel. This stunning and sacred devotional treasure features a depiction of The Blessed Mother surrounded by vivid green and blue heavenly hues. The original custodian´s initials (MG) are artfully engraved on the reverse along with the date 12/9/26.
Plique-à-jour (French for "letting in daylight") is a vitreous enameling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel.
The medal measures .55"W x .90"L (including the loop and bail)
weight - 1.25 grams (quite petite and perfect for layering)
There are no hallmarks present and the medal has been tested for 18k gold
Country of origin: Spain
