This necklace honors that devotion, featuring a gold and silver-tone Miraculous Mary Medal with a gold-tone “miracles” charm tag. On the front of the medal, Mary is encircled by the French words, “Marie, conue sans péché, priez pour nous qui avons recours vous” which translates to: “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you.” Handmade at the Holy Site of Lourdes, each medal is created by the official maker of the Miraculous Mary Medal for the Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Paris, where the very first Miraculous Mary Medal was made.
