Love this dainty necklace of Mother Mary. The back also has the typical design of a Mary Pendant: an M, surmounted by a cross, with two hearts and 12 stars. The "M" is an abbreviation for "Mary". The cross represents the sacrifice of Jesus. The two hearts are for Mary and Jesus. The 12 stars symbolize the 12 apostles or from the Book of Revelation 12:1 "a great sign appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of 12 stars."
