It has been preserved in the Ranosović family like many other important objects associated with the Obrenović dynasty. The medallion has rich floral ornaments, decorated with a sapphire cross, emerald anchor and a ruby heart encircled with diamonds (symbols of faith, hope and love) in the "embossing" technique. The reverse of the medallion has a cover of full cut glass, with sufficient room for a photograph. The medallion is hanging on a narrow gold chain.
