Catholics first popularized the tradition of wearing devotional medals during the Renaissance period to commemorate particular Saints, holy places or historical events. Many Catholics of the time would have personal medals cast to mark births and special sacraments such as Baptism and Confirmation, with the persons name and the date and give them out. Catholic medals also carry with them particular graces and indulgences for those who wear them. Today Catholic medals have become a refined art and are made of quality materials such as gold, silver and pewter. Devotional medals are artwork that can be displayed on the wall, kept in your wallet, mirror hung in your car, or worn around your neck.
