Many people enjoy wearing a St. Florian necklace as both a fashionable
piece of jewelry, and a sign of their patron saint. St. Florian
is the patron saint of firefighters and chimney sweeps, and many
people in these professions wear St. Florian necklaces. It's a
wonderful way to keep the patron saint close as a reminder of
Many people include a medallion with their St. Florian necklace.
St. Florian is depicted in various poses, and a favorite with
firefighters is the saint pouring water on a burning house, and
the words "St. Florian Protect Us" around the outside
of the medallion. Often the medallion is in the shape of a maltese
cross, the traditional symbol for firefighters.
Since the St. Florian necklace is often worn almost continuously,
many people prefer to purchase one made of stainless steel, sterling
silver, or gold. These metals hold up well to the strain of constant
wear and exposure to water, soap, and sweat.
A St. Florian necklace is the perfect gift for someone of Polish
or Austrian descent, as he is the patron saint of both Linz, Austria,
and Poland. Necklaces can be found with inscriptions in Polish
or German for those who would like something from the "old
country" or who speak those languages.
A Saint Florian necklace is a wonderful gift or keepsake for a
friend or family member, or even yourself!
