A tiny portrait of St Dwynwen, patron saint of lovers, on a silver chain
St Dwynwen is the Welsh patron saint of lovers, which makes her the Welsh equivalent of St Valentine!
She founded a convent on Llanddwyn, off the west coast of Anglesey, where a well named after her became a place of pilgrimage after her death in 465AD. Visitors to the well believed that the sacred fish or eels that lived in the well's water could foretell whether or not their relationship would be happy and whether love and happiness would be theirs. Remains of Dwynwen's church can still be seen today.
This patron saint necklace was designed in London and has been handcrafted using traditional lost wax casting, before being hallmarked by the London Assay Office. Please read our Jewellery Care guide to make sure your piece of handcrafted jewellery lasts for many years!
