Recommended St. Michael Medal
Below is the
sterling medal I recommend for
men. I have found men prefer one inch round no larger and no smaller.
I suggest the back be engraved with the first name, full middle name, and
last name in heavy block so it can be returned if lost.
I have found men prefer our 25.5 inch endless
stainless steel chain over sterling.
It is the proper size, strong, stays elegant and is rarely returned.
For sterling search for 25E or 26E on one of our sites.
compares to 25E sterling
||St. Michael Sterling Silver Saint Michael Medal. round 25mm and comes on our fine 25.5 inch endless stainless steel chain. The MG in the item number means MAKE GORGEOUS which is what we do by buffing and polishing the fine silver silver until shinny shiny bright and gorgeous and wonderful to touch. The center comes light and in time should darken.
After casting manufacturers
gold plate, silver plate or
spray sterling medals with lacquer varnish which gives the medal that grey look.
All three methods prevent tarnishing and also prevent you from
seeing and touching the gorgeous sterling underneath.
Plating wears off and lacquer varnish bonds with silver polish, sweat, etc. and the medal
can turn colors.
We order this medal RAW from the manufacturer. Which means they only
cast and do no finishing. After sterling medals are cast they are unfinished with sharp round edges.
I buff off the
sharp edges rounding them.
Medals quickly heat to 300 plus degrees when buffing and are
difficult to hold.
Once the edges
are off I concentrate buffing to make gorgeous. At this point the medal
looks ok but is not qorgeous. I continue buffing until it is.
Once buffed down to the gorgeous sterling the medat
will tarnish if not worn; however, rubbing
with your fingers will bring back that beautiful luster and that is
how you know you are touching sterling. When not worn cover with tissue
so air does not come in contact with the sterling.
On medals from some manufacturers I can buff the features off in seconds.
On this medal I can not. It is die struck with a 16 ton press and is dense.
To make this page simple I have left out many details.
I do this for the joy it gives me and others and not for the renumeration.
