The inscription on the front of the medal reads “Dilecto Carmel” which translates to, “Beloved Carmel.” The back of the medal depicts a family crest with the year 1718. Often, families or individuals who had a devotion to Our Lady, would have their family crest engraved on the back of a medal and would then attach their image with a special prayer intention. The tiny holes at each end of the arms were used to thread a ribbon to attach these images and prayers. The medal was then laid or hung onto a holy image within a church for intercessions for their intentions. (new spain, 1718).

CONSTRUCTION OF SERAPHYM HEIRLOOM DESIGNS: Seraphym Inc houses the first Heirloom Rosary & jewelry collection of its kind in the US and abroad. In 2015 Seraphym was commissioned to make a Rosary for Pope Francis during his visit to the US for the canonization of St. Junipero Serra.
The creator of the brand, Arasely Rios, grew up in a family that prayed the rosary every night, and she has been making rosaries since she was 8yrs old. Her love of this art has been a part of her daily life for over 40 yrs, and naturally her creations evolved into the first heirloom solid bronze and sterling silver rosaries and jewelry that reflect ancient aspects in design, construction and symbolism. For over 20 yrs now, these Rosaries have been loved by Catholics everywhere.
Each piece is designed, manufactured and assembled in the USA. Her philanthropic spirit helps charitable organizations through out the nation. When you purchase a sacred design by Seraphym you will own a unique, handmade heirloom that will bless and live within your family for generations.
