Sterling and Gold Medal Necklace, World War I Medal Necklace, Medal of Honor Necklace, Artisan Necklace, Angel Necklace, Victory Necklace
This handmade, Sterling and Gold necklace is made from a mold of an old World War I Victory Medal.
This medal has been in our family for years as it was my husband's grandfather who received it and it was passed down to us. I always thought this would make an interesting, Old World necklace with a bit of history and decided to design a necklace that portrays victory, which we all need a little more of these days!
The World War I Victory Medal was awarded for military service during the First World War. On the reverse side of this bronze medal is a winged, victory image. Winged figures representing victory and referred to as winged victories, were commonly portrayed in ancient Roman religion. The medal was designed by James Earle Fraser, an American sculptor during the first half of the 20th century. His work is integral to many of Washington, D.C.'s most iconic structures.
It is about an inch in diameter and the wings of this victorious figure are accented in 22kt Genuine Gold so it has a beautiful, two-toned effect. It hangs off of a Sterling Silver Chain with small Gold Filled Balls interspersed throughout that is 24" long. I love the vintage, unique look of this medal and it would look wonderful layered with other necklaces for a true boho look.
When a package ships internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed (e.g. handling fees) by the destination country. These charges are typically due once the package arrives in the destination country.
In general, the buyer is responsible for paying the additional costs such as duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees. These charges can vary widely and are often based on the price and type of item, package weight and dimensions, origin country, and the taxes, duties, and fees of the destination country.
Most sellers on Etsy can’t predict which of these fees, if any, will be applied, and Etsy doesn’t expect sellers to calculate or collect these fees or taxes.
