St. George Medals

St. George Medallion

Pagans wore talismans as symbols of requests to their gods to protect them from evil forces. When Christianity spread throughout Europe, instead of banning that practice, the Church encouraged people to wear some remembrance of a saint. This not only helped to convert the pagans it also spread the word of honoring those saints, many of whom were martyrs. Today, wearing saint medals is one of the most popular forms of Catholic jewelry.

Legends about Saint George are varied. He is commonly depicted in early icons, mosaics and frescos wearing armor of the Roman soldier. After the Crusades he is more often portrayed as being mounted upon a white horse. He is often associated with another Roman soldier who became a saint, St. Demetrius, in which the two represent the manifestations of the archangels Michael and Gabriel. In Easter traditions St. George always rides a white horse and Demetrius rides a red horse. St George is also identified in the act of spearing a dragon. His coat of arms is the Red Cross on a white banner.

Saint George gold medallion is cast in gold portrays St. George dressed as a soldier while riding a horse with his banner displayed. He drives his spear into the heart of a dragon beneath the horse's feet.


Saint George necklace bears the same die-cast with a filigree frame around the edges. It also has St. George Pray for Us written around the inner rim.
