St. James the Greater Patron Saint Medal
This handsome, heavy medal measures 1" as shown. An endless (over the head) stainless steel curb chain is standard with the 1" medal. A smaller size, 3/4" medal (preferred by most ladies) is also available with a finer, 18" stainless curb chain. The same medal is available in both sizes in a heavy 14 karat gold filled with or without a goldtone chain, or in solid 14 karat gold, without chain. If the chains provided do not suit, order the medal without chain and check out our Neck Chains for other options, styles, and sizes.

St. James the Greater, one of Christ's 12 Apostles, was a fisherman by trade and the brother of St. John and son of Zebedee. These brothers were once called the "Sons of Thunder" by Our Lord. After the Ascension, this James became the bishop of Jerusalem. He was the first Apostle to suffer martyrdom. He is called the "Greater" to distinguish him from the other Apostle, also name James (the Less). Perhaps this James was taller or bigger, or older than the other.
