Genuine 14k gold. The pedant has a detailed and beautiful image of the Virgin Guadalupe in the center. It is also inscribed with the text, "Our Lady of Guadalupe Pray for Us". The finely stone polished surfaces gives off gentle and elegant glow to the piece. The edges of the pedant are finely polished for contrast and extra sparkles. This is a great item to commemorate a religious occasion such as baptism, communion, and confirmation. It also is a great everyday jewelry for any devout believer.
