"St. Benedict's Pearls" Turquoise and Gold Jewelry
Gold colored Saint Benedict medals are paired with blue freshwater pearls. This pair enhances the golds and greens found in the freshwater pearls. On one side of the medal is a simple cross while the other side is the image of St. Benedict.
On the margin of the medal, encircling the figure of Benedict, are the Latin words: Eius in obitu nostro praesentia muniamur! (May we be strengthened by his presence in the hour of our death!). Benedictines have always regarded St. Benedict as a special patron of a happy death.
