I bought this charm St. Christopher for my daughter who is now in Sweden study in a medical school. I have faith in St. Christopher that he will bring her back home safe. My daughter wears it with a James Avery chain with another charm. I love all jewelry from James Avery especially this charm that is protecting my daughter across the world. She will be back in December 2015 with her St. Christopher's charm.
A wonderful pendant
I got this medal because of its interesting design. It's about the size of a dime, it's very light, but it's very nice. I did get some strange green oxidization, but that was easily removed.
I was given this by my Dad. I never take it off. I've been wearing it for over 10 years. However the site seem restricted on how many characters you can engrave on the back. I have 31 characters on mine.
This is a wonderful metal. The best one I have seen.
St. Christopher medal
I have been wearing my medal for several years and love it! On an 18 ct. chain and cross.
Nice For Either Gender
When my 27 year old son was a baby, my friend bought the tiny (now retired version) St. Christopher medal for him. I felt it was fitting to get it for him when he turned 18 in the larger version. This is a great piece, as it's about the size of a dime. The stamped, raised surface tends to stay shiny and highly polished while the rest of it oxidizes with wear. A great piece for either gender. I love the meaning behind the St. Christopher.
My parents gave this medal and chain to my son for his First Communion. He has worn it daily and is 15 now. I've had to replace the chain a few times (you know boy's) but he's never lost the medal--even on the football field!!
Unique and Special
I purchased this for my boyfriend before he deployed. He wanted a St Christopher's necklace and when I researched the internet, all the others looked so mass produced and cheap. This one is so beautiful and unique and he absolutely loved it and wears it everyday.
kept him safe for 40 years
I purchased the St. Christophers Medal during my husband's flight school in Del Rio Texas in 1968 or 1969. He wore it from then on, through Viet Nam, through his flying with the Vermont Air National Guard and while a pilot with Continental Airlines.....over 40 years of safety! He retired from all in 2005 and we both value greatly the James Avery St. Christopher's Medal. Buy it.....it works!!!
You'll never travel alone!
I just learned the story of St Christopher and now when I travel and roam, I will always do it with him on my bracelet. What a great charm-and it would make a fanastic gift for any travelers on your list!
I purchased this charm (and a chain) for a gift for my husband. He doesn't wear jewelry (other than his wedding ring) but he appreciates the symbolism of the St. Christopher charm and hasn't taken it off since I gave it to him! The charm would be perfect for engraving a special date or bible verse on the back side.
