Say hello to the Stella Maris Necklace - a beautiful homage to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Lady, Star of the Sea, a title invoked for the protection of sailors and guidance through life's stormy seas. This beautiful piece of Catholic jewelry is made with a Stella Maris Saint Medal, a silver-colored star charm, and a gorgeous dark blue cathedral glass bead, all elegantly suspended from a nickel-free base alloy chain. The chain is available in 18in and 24in, to best suite a variety of wearers.
- Stella Maris, is a title believed to have first been associated with the Blessed Mother in the 4th century. St. Bernard of Clairvaux summed up the devotion to Our Lady Star of the Sea when he wrote in the 12th century: "If the winds of temptation arise, if you are driven upon the rocks of tribulation look to the star, call on Mary. If you are tossed upon the waves of pride, of ambition, of envy, of rivalry, look to the star, call on Mary. Should anger, or avarice, or fleshly desire violently assail the frail vessel of your soul, look to the star, call upon Mary."
- This necklace makes a great gift for anyone with a devotion to the Virgin Mary, especially mothers or girls being Confirmed in the Church. It is extra special for those going through a metaphorical "storm" in their life.
