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.
We love this necklace best paired with our Seashell Necklace or Miraculous Medal Necklace (pictured here in a 16" length).
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.

Love my necklace! I get so many compliments on it! It is solidly constructed!
Shopping on the website, ordering, and receiving the necklace was a pleasant experience. The Stella Maris necklace is beautiful and I am very pleased. It’s well made and unique. I look forward to future purchases.
I love my Stella Maris necklace. The details are vivid and beautiful. I’ll probably order a gold one also because I’m wearing a lot of gold these days. With this beauty in detail, gold would be amazing!
This piece is so so beautiful! Our Lady Star of the Sea was very important within the last year of my spiritual life as a missionary, but I was never in a spot to buy this necklace. I was so excited when nearly a year after wanting to purchase that I was finally able to!! It’s so extremely beautiful, the silver is bright, and Our Lady holding up the boat reminds me of the way she holds up my life. Such a quality, wonderful necklace and I can’t wait to purchase more !!
Love this hearty pendant. Thank you!!!!
