Back to school is a special time for children (and parents) each and every year. It's filled with fun and anticipation of what this new year of learning will bring. Unfortunately, attending school can also be fraught with hardships and uncertainty too.
Thanks to bullying and various scholastic difficulties, children can at times dread going to school, although learning to overcome these challenges is just one of the things we must all face on our road to becoming an adult. During times like these, it might make both you and your child feel better to send them on their way with a little token of protection and love. That's where PicturesOnGold.com comes in...
A guardian angel is a angel who protects and guides a particular person. The concept of tutelary angels and their hierarchy was extensively developed in Christianity in the 5th century by Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite. The theology of angels, and tutelary spirits, has undergone many refinements since the 400's, and contemporary orthodox belief in both the eastern and western churches is that guardian angels protect the body and present prayers to God, protecting whichever person God assigns them to. The Roman Catholic Church calendar of saints includes a memorial for guardian angels on October 2.
PicturesOnGold has developed a unique category of back to school jewelry which includes back to school lockets featuring the Patron Saint of School Children. I had the chance to review the Guardian Angel School Protect Medal which features color laser engraving on the front of a sterling silver oval and a beautiful inscription on the back reading, "Please Protect My Child".
The great thing about the color laser engraving process at PicturesOnGold, is that the picture will literally last forever, making this a perfect piece to become an instant family heirloom. I thought this pendant was a beautiful example of religious jewelry and one that might make an uneasy child feel a little better about their new school year.
If you'd like to treat that special child in your life to an unforgettable piece of jewelry, like a back to school guardian angel pin, then I definitely recommend checking out the vast selection of 14K gold and sterling silver pendants from PicturesOnGold.
