Full or ornate detail and rich color, the Elegant Hidden Cross Locket Necklace by The Vatican Library Collection will polish off an elegant ensemble. Placed at the bottom of a dramatic 30-inch rope chain is an oval-shaped locket design that showcases a rich red color base. The red color is over-laid with a detailed framing and vintage design. The bottom of the locket opens to reveal a hidden cross, making this pendant a true conversation piece. A modern twist on religions jewelry, this necklace is a sentimental gift for all.
Through an exclusive licensing agreement with The Vatican Library, the 1928 Jewelry Company obtained the rights to reproduce objects and jewelry that are found in the collections of religious artifacts in the Vatican City library. Drawing on these resources, the 1928 Jewelry Company created The Vatican Library Collection, a stunning line of faith-oriented Catholic jewelry and religious gifts. This inspirational collection is handcrafted in the U.S.A., and offers high quality hand-strung rosaries, hand-enameled rosary boxes, jeweled angels, etched crosses, engraved crucifixes, bookmarks, and giftables. These same designs are also sold within the shops of the Vatican Museums.
The Vatican Library, heir to the ancient papal libraries, is one of the world’s greatest repositories of historic art and architectural masterpieces. The artistic strengths of The Vatican Library Collection are found in the magnificently frescoed Sistine Chapel, and the scarred antiquities of the Museo Sacro and Museo Profano. Now these inspired designs from treasures only accessible to qualified scholars are available to own or give with pride.
