Saint Medallions - Picking Out the Right One

Giving religious jewelry to someone who enjoys expressing their faith is a great idea. If you want to give something meaningful or are at a loss as to what to give, then picking out and giving saint medallions is a great gift idea. The Catholic religion has over 10,000 saints. However, there are only a few hundred that people consistently pray to on a regular basis. This still makes it a challenge to find the perfect medal for the person you are shopping for. Here are a few tips for picking out the right medallion for that religious person in your life.
Saint Medallions
The first thing you need to consider is which type of blessings the person would appreciate bringing into their life. For example, Saint Christopher is the patron saint of travelers. Believers petition Saint Christopher for the blessing of safe passage whenever they go on a journey. This type of medallion is great to give someone who travels a lot for business or pleasure, even if all they do is commute to work daily. Other popular saint medallions include Saint Michael, Saint Dominic, and Saint Jude. The internet is a great resource to turn to for information on the different saints and who they watch over.

Saint medallions can be worn different types of ways, as a necklace, a pin, or they may be added to rosary beads. You should consider the type of jewelry the person will wear. Some people love necklaces. Others would rather add the medallion to other pieces of religious jewelry. Since these medallions come in different sizes, you will need to consider this in order to get the most appropriate size for the person. Medallions are also made in a variety of materials including gold, silver, and platinum. White gold is becoming increasingly popular. Try to select a metal that works with their wardrobe.
