Pope St. Pius V started the tradition of blessing medals and attaching an indulgence to them on 1572. Since then, scapular medals with the images of Jesus and Mary are blessed by priests and worn with that meaning in mind.
We have a wide variety of beautiful scapular medals to choose from, of the Sacred Heart of Jesus with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, or Jesus and Our Blessed Mother medals, in different sizes, antique or vintage style.
Another Catholic tradition is to place devotional holy medals on a rosary. The Enchiridion of Indulgences states that the faithful, who devoutly use an article of devotion, be it a crucifix or cross, rosary, scapular, or medal, that has been properly blessed by any priest, obtain a partial indulgence.
