Ghirelli is excited to introduce our new collection of Saint Benedict Crucifixes and Pendants made exclusively in Italy by Germoglio.
Each Crucifix is crafted by trained artisans, with careful attention to every detail and component during the hand-assembling process.
Why makes Germoglio’s Saint Benedict Crucifix far superior than others?
>> They were the first company in Italy to produce and market to the world the famous Saint Benedict Medal/Crucifix
>> Each Saint Benedict Medal is individually cast with its respective inscriptions and images -- not fused to the cross -- in accordance to the guidelines established by the authoritative Church
>> Each Corpus/Body of Christ is actually hand nailed to the surface of the Cross
>> Each Corpus/Body of Christ and Saint Benedict Medal are cast in Brass and then plated
>> Each Crucifix is made of high grade steel
This Saint Benedict Crucifix Pendant is made of steel with a highly polished gunmetal finish. The Saint Benedict Medal and Body of Christ are made from solid brass and plated in a silver finish.
The Crucifix Pendant measures approximately 2 1/4" tall X 1 1/4" wide. Ghirelli ships this pendant in a Germoglio jewel plastic box, along with a helpful mini brochure that has the Saint Benedict prayer along with an explanation of the abbreviations on the Medal.
