Saint Paul Medals Are Misleading

What do we know about saints? It is possible that we know very little about saints. Football fans might be familiar with the New Orleans Saints because they won the Super Bowl last year. Minor league baseball fans might be familiar with the Saint Paul Saints. However, the Saint Paul Saints aren’t religious. They are a baseball team that plays in Saint Paul Minnesota. It seems as if Saint Paul medals should depict buildings located in Saint Paul Minnesota. This is because Saint Paul Minnesota is a nice city. In addition, since there is a city with the name of Saint Paul, Saint Paul medals are misleading. Moreover, it seems as if Saint Paul had more than one name. Let’s discuss Saint Paul, the person.

Saint Paul Medals

It has been claimed that Saint Paul was called three other names. These three other names are Paul the Apostle, Apostle Paul, and Paul of Tarsus. It might surprise some people to know that Saint Paul was Jewish. However, he called himself the Apostle to the Gentiles. It is possible that this action didn’t sit well with the Jewish community. It may come as no surprise that Saint Paul’s conversion to Christianity from Judaism dramatically changed the course of his life. His actions and his writings eventually changed both his religious beliefs and his philosophy.

Patron Saint Jewelry - A Brief Overview

Patron saint jewelry is a group of medals that have the image of a particular saint stamped or drawn into them. This type of jewelry is popular with Catholics who wear them to invoke the protection or blessing of the saint inscribed on the metal. For example, Saint Christopher is a popular saint who watches over travelers. Many Catholics wear a Saint Christopher medal to ensure safe passage whenever they take a trip even if it is to the grocery store on the corner. They are also a popular way for the faithful to express their love and belief in God.
Patron Saint Medals
According to archeological evidence, saint medallions have been worn since the early times of Christianity. Many historians believe that the wearing of patron saint jewelry was influenced by the surround pagan religions whose members often wore talismans with the image of their gods on them for protection. The church adopted this practice and substituted the saints in the place of the pagan gods. Today, there are over 10,000 saints that have been inducted into the Catholic religion. However, there are only a few hundred that people call upon with any regularity. Some of the most popular saints include Saint Christopher, Saint Francis of Assisi, Saint Patrick, and Saint Helena.

The Timeless And Classic Cubetto Bracelet

There are, of course, many types of fine jewelry however one of the most popular is the ever famous Cubetto bracelet. Cubetto jewelry is one of a kind and it is very distinguishable from other types of bracelets. The Cubetto bracelet will be noticed for the way which it is crafted. Whether gold, silver or both, the Cubetto bracelet will be made with thin bars that are flush against one another. There are countless variations and one should know some key elements regarding gold and silver when thinking about a purchase.

If you have ever heard of a Cubetto bracelet and are wondering exactly what this is, Cubetto jewelry is a type that is crafted by having very thin bars precious metal flush again one another, forming either a necklace or bracelet. The gold or silver is then sometimes cut with designs to create different variations. There are many looks to the Cubetto bracelet.

Most Cubetto bracelets will be found in either gold or silver. Whenever purchasing a Cubetto bracelet or other piece of fine jewelry, you may wish to know a bit about gold, silver or both. Most of you are probably familiar with the fact that gold is sold in the forms of karats. Karats may be referred to as the weight of the gold; in fact the karats are going to be referring to how much pure gold was used in making the piece of jewelry.

Pure gold, with absolutely no metals added to it is called 24 karat gold. One element to know about 24 karat gold is that it is rather soft. Diamonds are the hardest jewelry material, not gold! Therefore, 24 karat gold, although very moldable is not always best for using for certain jewelry. For this reason, many a Cubetto bracelet or other type of jewelry will be made with 18 karat gold. The reason for this is that 18 karat gold is mixed with another metal to make it stronger and sturdier. With 18 karats, the gold in the Cubetto bracelet or other piece will be seventy five percent gold; this is considered a very good and valuable piece of gold. As you go down the list of other karats, the lower the number the less pure gold is in the piece. Even 14 karat gold is considered a good gold. Less than 14 karats is rarely desired; although some do choose to buy it. Do keep in mind that if there is a piece of jewelry with a high quantity of other metals, some people will have a skin reaction to those other metals. For example, a piece of 12 karat jewelry will have a fairly high percentage of another metal and it is that other metal that can turn the skin a darker color where the piece of jewelry sits.

You can find a Cubetto bracelet in many different styles. Silver is a precious metal and is very popular and classic. Silver has been used in jewelry making since the ancient societies that focused on the art of jewelry crafting. Silver in its pure and natural form is extremely soft; even softer than gold. It is for that reason that any piece of silver jewelry will be made of silver and one or more metals that are blended into the pure silver to make it strong enough to be formed into a piece of jewelry. The other metals do not take away any of the shiny qualities of the silver; in fact in most cases, the metals added will only lend more shine to the silver.

ID bracelets help old, young in emergencies

Many of us care for our parents or an elderly neighbor or perhaps a young adult with special needs. These people may depend upon us to varying degrees throughout their life, but most people cherish their independence and privacy and we can't always be there when we are needed.

If this sounds familiar we would encourage you to provide these people with a small gift that could save their life. Consider buying an identification bracelet or a medical bracelet based on the need of the individual. These bracelets can be purchased at most pharmacies and typically cost $5.

It isn't unusual for us to locate an elderly person driving in Ankeny and learn they are lost and later learn they suffer from Alzheimer's or a diminished level of recall. In some instances these people have been found hundreds of miles from home. They may forget to carry their license and it is difficult to reunite them with family. An identification bracelet with a name, address and phone number would help us to reunite a lost person with their family.

Some of you may recall a time when our mothers would stitch our name in our clothing because it would help us find it after we left the clothes in a most inconvenient place. It isn't a bad idea to write your child's first name on the inside pocket of their clothes with an indelible marker, particularly if you have a youngster who is an adventurer and can wander from home. Children can panic and forget their names and they certainly won't remember where they live once they are lost. The good news is that these children are typically reunited quickly with a frantic parent but it does help when police can calm a child by calling him by his first name until mom or dad arrives.

If you have any questions about identification bracelets, contact Lt. Arnie Porath at 965-6440.
