When you are fighting to save lives, every second counts; that is why some doctors, nurses, and medical practitioners count on the Word of God for strength and guidance. Christian jewelry, such as the Shields of Strength womenÕs stainless steel medical necklace, is a constant source of inspiration and guidance for people who are in stressful situations, facing insurmountable odds and endless challenges daily. This beautiful necklace comprises a stainless steel chain measuring 16, 18, 20, 22, or 24 inches, and a pendant. The front of the pendant features the caduceus: Two snakes entwining a staff, surmounted by wings. The symbol is associated with medicine in the United States, and features on the US Army Medical Corps Branch Plaque. The reverse of the pendant has the embossed words of 2 Chronicles 15:7, "But as for you, be strong and courageous, for your work will be rewarded." Clean with a polishing cloth.
