Ancient & Olds Stories Today, as Cynthia Ann pursues her love of design, the "Ancient and Olds Collection" pieces have become an integral part of the collection; to say they have taken center stage is truly an understatement. Each of the medals is lovingly and uniquely designed to enhance its original history & beauty. Her collection holds a very special place in her heart - and she is excited to share it with others. Golgotha Cross The d eath and resurrection of Jesus Christ was a significant event in history. The precise location where he was crucified, buried and resurrected has intrigued Christians for many centuries. Golgotha is a hill near the city of Jerusalem on which Christ was crucified. The Golgotha cross has a beautiful spiritual meaning. Orthodox "Old Believers" Female Cross The Ancient "Old Believers" Female Cross was specifically designed with curves at each end. The crosses typically have beautiful feminine designs at each end. The Orthodox "Old Believers" were an Orthodox sect that broke from the official Russian Orthodox Church as a protest against church reforms; the schism took place in the 17th century. Orthodox "Old Believers" Male Cross The ancient "Old Believers" Male Cross is defined by it's straight lines and no curves. The crosses typically have the eight point cross in the center surrounded by delicate designs. The Orthodox "Old Believers" were an Orthodox sect that broke from the official Russian Orthodox Church as a protest against church reforms; the schism took place in the 17th century. Cross of Lorraine The Cross of Lorraine was adopted as a patriarchal cross and used by the Dukes of Lorraine. The two tiers of the cross represent higher authority. Hermetic alchemists of the Renaissance period used this as a symbol of earth and spirit by combining the square earth cross with the cross of Christ. This cross is also called the true cross. Today, the Cross of Lorraine is the symbol of the global fight against tuberculosis and lung diseases. Antique English Padlock The Antique English padlock was typically worn on a bracelet and given to a loved one to show how much they were loved. Before going off to war, gentlemen would leave the bracelet locked around his loved one's wrist and he would hold the key until his return. The heart shaped padlock was fashionable in the Victorian and Edwardian periods. Guardian Angel Medal Belief in guardian angels can be traced throughout all antiquity. This medal represents Your Guardian Angel that has been with you since you took your first breath and will be with you when you pass out of your body and return to the spiritual realms. This angel is unique to you and is there to guide you through your “spiritual journey” here on earth. She is a reminder of your faith in God and that you are never alone! Sacred Heart Medal The Sacred Heart of Jesus is one of the most famous religious devotions to Jesus’ physical heart as his divine love for humanity. On the Miraculous Medal, the Sacred Heart is crowned with thorns, while the Immaculate Heart of Mary that also appears on the medal, is pierced by a sword. The “M” signifies Mary at the foot of the cross when Jesus was being crucified. Miraculous Mary Medal As shown on the front side of the medal, Mary appeared before St. Catherine with outstretched arms and open hands from which shone beams of light symbolizing the Graces of Mary obtained for humankind. Mary is standing on the globe, crushing the head of a serpent (Satan). On the backside of the medal is the letter M (for Mary) surmounted by a bar (symbolizing earth), and a cross (symbolizing Christ). Underneath are the hearts of Jesus (with the crown of thorns) and Mary (pierced by a sword). The surrounding 12 stars represent the 12 apostles. Our Lady of Lujan Medal According to legend, in 1639, a peasant from Argentina, wishing to revive his neighbors' "belief in their early faith" ordered two statues from Brazil, one of the Immaculate Conception, the other the Blessed Virgin and her Son. When the caravan delivering them reached a small ranch on the outskirts of Lujan, the driver could not urge the horses on until the statue of the Immaculate Conception was removed, indicating Mary's own choice of where her shrine should be. Many miracles have been attributed to the statue, which now resides nearby in a cathedral built for the shrine in 1910. Our Lady of Lourdes Medal Also known as "the Lady in the Cave", is the name used to refer to the Marian apparition said to have appeared first to St. Bernadette, and then before various individuals on separate occasions around Lourdes, France. Many Catholics and some Christians believe her apparitions to have been of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The medal shows St. Bernadette kneeling at the feet of Our Lady in front of the cave where the apparition appeared, or Our Lady in her statuesque form. Saint Benedict Medal There is indeed no medal which possesses such wonderful power and protection from evil. On one side, the medal has a cross, the sign of our redemption, the protecting shield given to us by God to ward off the evil spirit. At the top of the cross usually stands the word PAX (peace) of the monogram I H S (Jesus). Vertically and horizontally the letters CSSML and NDSMD mean: May the holy Cross be my light, let not the dragon be my guide. Around the margin of the Medal, the letters VRSNSMV and SMQLIVB mean: "Begone, Satan! Suggest not vain things to me. Evil is the cup thou offerest; Drink thou thine own poison." Saint Michael Medal Saint Michael the Archangel was also known as "The Angel of the Lord". He was the leader of the war in Heaven against Satan and is usually depicted with a sword slaying an evil dragon. The sword is double edged: truth and justice. Known as the Archangel of battle and defender of Heaven, St. Michael is said to be the patron saint of police, mariners and sickness. He is also known as the "Protector of the Church". Saint George and the Dragon Saint George was a Greek who became an officer in the Roman Army. As a brave Christian, he gave up his position in the Roman Army to stand up for and die for Christianity. Soldiers are known to be devoted to him. Medals of St. George typically show him killing a dragon to rescue a beautiful lady. The dragon stands for wickedness. The lady stands for god's holy truth. St. George was a brave martyr who was victorious over the devil. St. Francis of Assisi Medals Known as the Patron Saint of Animals and Birds, St. Francis understood God's desire to love and respect all creatures, including the lowliest of all. He is known as the very first advocate for animals. St. Francis was also the founder of the religious order known as the Franciscans. He became reknowned for his love, simplicity and practice of poverty. Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi Lord, make me an instrument of your peace, where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; Where there is sadness, joy'; O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love. For it is in giving that we receive. Ti is in pardoning that we are pardoned, And it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life. Amen. Church Bell Medals Bells came into use in our churches as early as the year 400. They were used for summoning the faithful to religious services and also for giving alarm when danger threatened. Many Anglican, Catholic and Lutheran churches ring their church bells from bell towers three times a day, at 6:00 A.M., 12:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M., summoning the Christian faithful to recite the Lord's Prayer. Watch Fobs Popular during the Victorian Era, watch fobs were medallions or ornaments attached to a pocket watch by a strap,chain, or ribbon to help the wearer locate and retrieve their timepiece. Similar to key chains, watch fobs came in a variety of types,each with its own style and function. Fobs could be decorative, informative, and functional, all at the same time. Created largely for men, today they are considered "mantiques." While many fobs were purely decorative, the rest were divided into three major categories: simple (the watch-owner's initials, state seals),fraternal (unions and organizations, including the military), and advertising (personal-sized billboard proclaiming everything from one's political allegiances to their local bank). Jetons Jetons were tokens or coin-like medals produced across Europe from the 13th through the 17th centuries. They were produced as counters for use in calculation on a lined board similar to an abacus. They also found use as money substitutes in games. In France and other countries, a jeton was also a small amount of money paid to members of a society or a legislative chamber each time they were present at a meeting. Love Tokens Love tokens were popular during the Victorian era. They were often exchanged between sweethearts as "tokens of love". This practice seems to have originated in Great Britain in the early 1800's and was most popular in the United States and in Canada shortly after the civil war until the early 1890's. Love Tokens are generally defined as coins on which one side (or sometimes both sides) has been smoothed down and engraved with names, phrases and/or scenes, as well as symbols of romance such as hearts, birds, flowers and sets of initials in love knots Vintage Pieces There is indeed Amidst her travels to Europe, Cynthia Ann found herself attracted to the meaning, fine craftsmanship and unique cut stones of the Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian era jewelry. These pieces have been lovingly "re-purposed" for you to "re-love". Swallows In many cultures, swallows symbolize everlasting love, as they are known to mate for life. The swallow also represents love, care, and affection towards family and friends, representing the loyalty of the person who will always return to them. Swallows are also known to carry souls to heaven, representing freedom and hope. Crescent Moons The Crescent moon has long been a symbol of transformation and transition as the moon moves through its cycles. The word "crescent" comes from the Latin verb "to grow" and typically refers to either the waxing or waning shape of the moon. Because of its association with growth, the crescent became a symbol for fertility. Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, is often wearing a hair ornament in the shape of a crescent moon.
