St. Apollonia Jewelry and Collectables
Apollonia was a virgin deaconess living in Alexandria during the time of the Roman Empire (about 250 AD) when a local uprising was triggered against Christians. When attacked by a local mob, her teeth were broken out. She was given the choice to reject Christ or be burned alive. It is said that she jumped into the fire without answering.
