The referencing of Mary as Stella Maris began in the 5th century. Seafarers invoked Mary as Stella Maris, Star of the Sea, because she was the calmer of storms. But Mary's intercessory power extends well beyond the reach of the sea—she truly calms the storms in the lives of all who follow her Son and implore her help.
As St. Bernard of Clairvaux explained, “If the winds of temptation arise; If you are driven upon the rocks of tribulation look to the star, call on Mary; If you are tossed upon the waves of pride, of ambition, of envy, of rivalry, look to the star, call on Mary. Should anger, or avarice, or fleshly desire violently assail the frail vessel of your soul, look at the star, call upon Mary.”
Wear this necklace as a reminder to call on Mary when the storms of life press upon you, following her as the Star that leads to Christ, the Prince of Peace.
This piece is part of our Stella Maris Collection. Our Lady, Star of the Sea has been a pivotal intercessor for Stella & Tide, so this collection holds a special place in our hearts.

Both necklaces I ordered are so beautiful! Will definitely order more in the future.
I LOVE my Stella Maris Disc Necklace. My almost-two-year-old daughter's name is Stella Juliette. We ask Our Lady Stella Maris to pray for us every night before bed, so this sweet necklace has so much meaning. I bought it for myself with the intention of gifting it to her at some point in the future, but every time she notices me wearing it now she asks me to put it on her. Beautiful design! Great Quality!
I absolutely love my Stella & Tide Stella Maris necklace. It is dainty and beautiful. It is also a great reminder of my faith; whenever I feel envious or prideful or fearful, it reminds me to call on Mama Mary.
I really love my necklace and it is gorgeous! This is my second Stella & Tide necklace and they do not disappoint!
Beautiful and unique. Love this custom piece!
I ordered 2 necklaces. Love both! Shipping was fast and packaging was attractive. I have no complaints about the order, the description, the delivery nor the quality. All top notch. The only thing that could benefit from improvement is how difficult the clasp is. This was my first order so I don’t know if this clasp is universal to all S&T necklaces. It opens such a tiny, tiny amount that it’s extremely difficult to put the other end through to secure around your neck. I deal with it because I love the necklace so much.
