Default Want vintage Miraculous Medal

Friend admired my vintage medal and I hope to find one for her. Art Deco style. The gold medal sits atop black onyx which sits atop a gold plate with marcasites surrounding the onyx.

Found medals in sterling silver but not gold.

Any help is appreciated.

Try eBay.

If it's not on there now-it may be eventually.

Try, try again.


God Bless you.

Sorry about that!

This one is just like the one my mother gave me, I think when I was 14:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/CHARM-vintag...item5893b0bce8

She'd bought it at an auction with some stuff. I have to have a new ring soldered to the top every several years...so, I've been wearing it for around 40 years!

Good Luck.

I know I found a website once that uses old molds-to cast medals. The one I wear was included. I don't have it anymore. I'll try to search.

Maybe, if nothing else, you could take a photo of your friend's and send it around?


God Bless you.

Oh, I own the medal which she admires. Yours is very pretty. Mine has 30 marcasites so it has some dazzle to it. I'm going to try the antique shops in town and see what they have to offer.

I got it mixed up-sorry!

How about posting a picture here? Maybe we (someone) can help?

Post a picture on a computer on a forum? Hmmmm. This might take me some time.

Here's a SS one with Marcasites:

Miraculous Medal
But you said yours is gold.
I wear silver.
I understand how we girls go with either the gold or silver, (and stay there!)


God Bless you.

Maybe this isn't what you are looking for, but it is art-deco, and it doesn't seem as though it will be very expensive!

Sorry, not it. There was one posted the design of which was close but the whole thing was too big. I have time so I'll be patient. Also planning on hitting the local antique shops.

You can also try etsy.

I typed miraculous medal into the search box. Set it to vintage.

Here is what came up today.

This link I typed in miraculous medal gold. Set the search to vintage.

Yay! I am glad you found something for your friend!

If you get something for yourself, too, enjoy!

I love etsy.
