Placing crowns on icons of Mary dates back to the first millennium. Pope Clement VIII (d. 1605) began the practice by crowning an image of Our Lady and the infant Jesus in the Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome.
French Kande is plated in sterling silver, gold and brass, all hand-finished by California artisans. Many feature color variations and blemishes that contribute to their one-of-a-kind aesthetic. Keep your Kande dry and free of oils and fragrances to maintain the finish's integrity. Should it patina over time, use a polishing cloth to revive its lustre. Do not use cleaners or polishing compounds as it will remove the oxidation resulting in a brightened, shiny finish.
