This one of a kind necklace features a 24" White Freshwater Pearl and brass linked chain with Brilliante Bezel Swarovski Crystals surrounding a Saint Christopher coin medallion.
St Christopher is the patron saint of travelers. Born in Canaan, he was a powerfully built man who late in life helped people that needed to cross a dangerous river. One day while carrying a child whose weight nearly crushed him, the child revealed himself as God, bearing the weight of the world.
French Kande is a vintage forward® jewelry line created by indie designer Kande Hall. Her collections feature stunning, vintage French medallions from the 1960's that she discovered during her travels throughout France.
Each medallion is a story waiting to be told. Each offers its own unique history and brilliantly captures the style and attitude of the glorious French culture.
Designed and manufactured entirely in her hometown of Los Angeles, every design and casting is proprietary: designed personally by Kande Hall and branded exclusively for our use.
If it doesn't say French Kande, it simply isn't. Using natural materials of the highest quality possible and working only with Los Angeles and U.S. based manufacturing resources, every length of chain, every strand of stone and pearls is personally curated by Kande to insure quality and reflect her trademark aesthetic.
Timeless in its design, Kande's jewelry speaks boldly, yet it is undeniably feminine. Her SoCal lifestyle has shaped her “throw on and go” attitude regarding her collections' style and wearability; it's the perfect accessory for a day at the beach or a night on the town.
French Kande is plated in sterling silver, gold and brass, all hand finished by California artisans.
Many feature color variations and blemishes that contribute to their one-of-a-kind aesthetic.
Keep your French Kande jewelry dry and free of oils and fragrances to maintain the finishes integrity. Should it patina over time, use a polishing cloth to revive its lustre.
Do not use cleaners or polishing compounds as it will remove the oxidation resulting in a brightened, shiny finish.
