In Mexico, milagros are tokens of wishes to God to relieve them from problems. If ones arm or leg hurts one carries or pins on a milagro. The center focal point is a cross of Caravaca. The beads are turquoise glass, the milagros are base metal and some are silver plated as are the fittings. 22 1/2" long. The cross is1 1/2". Closes with a lobster clasp. Not marked. Excellent vintage condition. Absolutely charming.
