My Papessa Prayer Lockets were inspired by the story of the medieval Pope Joan, who disguised herself as a man to become the spiritual leader of the Catholic church. Most historians dismiss the female pope as legend, but she has her supporters too. Whatever you choose to believe, this locket is perfect for carrying a tiny prayer scroll, love note or good luck token. Shown open (the pieces unscrew) and closed in both 18K yellow and rose gold with diamonds. Worn on a 28″ chain. I am also working on a white gold version with pink sapphires.
