This necklace is two-sided and gold overlay.

This necklace is a symbol of the religion that I grew up in. I was raised as a Catholic mainly by my mom's influence she gave me the necklace. The necklace is meant to her a symbolism of her home life where she grew up in Mexico. She gave me the necklace in order to represent my religious upbringing. Also to give me protection in my everyday life with the Virgen the Guadalupe and Jesus in the necklace they are represented in the necklace.
