This 18K gold vermeil necklace captures Sainte Sara in front of the fortress church of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, where Sainte Sara is buried. There is a shrine of Sainte Sara underneath the church.

The medal measures 18mm in diameter and the chain measures 18 inches and is Italian 18K gold vermeil. The French writing on the medal: "SAINTE SARA, PATRONNE DES GENS DU VOYAGE" translates to "SAINTE SARA, PATRON SAINT OF TRAVELERS."

SAINTE SARA, also known as Sara-la-Kali, is the patron saint of the Romani people. The center of her veneration is Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, a place of pilgrimage for the Roma in the Camargue, in southern France.

SAINTES MARIES DE LA MER - In 47AD Mary Magdalene and her companions were forced out of Palestine after the Resurrection of Jesus and sailed in a boat from Palestine to Gaul (now France) landing in a fishing village near Marseille, which now claims the name Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Saint Sarah was the young woman who greeted them when their boat landed. There is an annual gathering in the town of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. May 24th is Sara's Procession (the patron saint of the Gypsies) and May 25th is a procession to venerate the memories of the three saints.
