Medal of the New Millennium with the image of Our Lady. Gold, diamonds and pearls
The medal of the New Millennium is a piece of jewellery in gold and diamonds, inspired by the medal of the rosary of the same name.
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 gold and pearl chain, with a gold oak leaf charm and a small pearl 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.
12 jewellers and goldsmiths worked on the 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, the heraldic symbol of a queen’s crown.
The image of Our Lady of Fátima was crowned on 13th May 1946.
