The medallion is from fine silver 999/1000 and on its face are depicted two running horses and the face of St. Theodore, and on the back of the medal is a scene from the Annunciation. The medal is placed in a mahogany box with a variety of insertion options.

Todorovden is between winter and spring. Nature is set to change and turn to a new beginning. Therefore the people believe that on this day St. Theodore puts on nine mantles, mounts his horse and goes to God to ask him to send the summer. When he gets there, he thrusts his spear in the ground, binds his horse to it and goes to the Lord. When he comes back he pulls out his weapon, and heat comes out of the place. St. Theodore brings the summer, everyone can celebrate now and the difficult days remain behind.
