Golden Earring and Mystery Medallion

Do you have the mate to this earring, (as seen on the right) or a pair? I lost the mate to this, one of my favorite pairs of earrings, a few years ago. I have decided to put up the picture hoping someone out there has a mate or a pair, they are willing to sell me. I am going to leave it up on my page..indefinately.. or until I find one.
I also have this medallion I got in a box at a yard sale. Does anyone know anything about it? There is what looks to be Latin writing on it, it may be a religious medallion, as it does say Alpha and Omega on it, but I don't know. If you know anything about it, please email me or write a comment about it.
Thanks for looking!

The pendant reminds me of Da Vinci's drawings but I don't know anything about it. Hope you find a mate to your earring!

I think it is a Masonic button from their "uniform" I'm pretty sure of this, like 95%....xxx bj

I looked up the Masons and didn't find anything like it. It is a medallion, though, not a button. It is pretty heavy, like maybe pewter or something.

If you can make out the words, I would try translating the Latin. There are websites like this one ( http://www.translation-guide.com/free_online_translators.php?from=Latin&to=English ) that might be helpful. That would give you another clue to pursue. Please keep is informed so we can help with the hunt.

I found one of these medallions after cleaning my grandmothers house when she died. I have been trying to figure out the writings but no luck as it is very hard to read. Have you had any luck?

Hello, do you still have this pendant?

battatter said...

yes, Travis, I still have it, and still don't know what it is. Do you know?

I just found a similar medallion. Has anyone identified what it is?
Mine is old and worn but legible. No dates, written in Latin. Looks like witchcraft to me.
