Medal of the New Millennium with the image of Our Lady. Gold and Diamond
The medal of the New Millennium comes from the same rosary, and is made of gold.
In the medal’s embossed image, Our Lady is shown in profile in a protective position of one who cares and looks out for us.
This “us” can be engraved as a name in the medal’s blank space where Our Lady is looking.
The medal also has a chain with a gold and diamond oak leaf charm evoking the tree above which the little shepherds saw Our Lady in Fátima.
The medal shows the image of Our Lady from the Chapel of the Apparitions, in Fátima, with the Precious Crown.
Twelve jewellers and goldsmiths worked on the original crown for three months, for a total of around 6,500 working hours.
2,992 precious stones were embedded following a design created by the Leitão house, featuring eight golden half-arches under a blue orb, commemorating the Queen of Heaven.
