"Dilecto Carmeli" means Beloved Carmel. It has four cherubs around the centre oval, with stunning filigree work.
The back has two rings, so that the clasp can be drawn in tighter for a light summer scarf or let out for the bulkiness of a winter scarf.
I have finally made up for sale, two beautiful, religious medals for scarf holders or in the summer to hold together a light cardigan or bolero jacket as seen in the photos below. I have one for myself and used it constantly throughout summer and winter, to me it is the wearing of a religious medal that also is functional with my clothing.
On the back of the medal is engravings ~ a lamb and possibly Carmel inspired markings. The chain I have used is Vintaj natural brass, an etched cable chain that is very strong. I have used a solid bronze flower clasp to hold the two ends of the chain together, the sides of the clasp can be opened when putting the medal on or off.
