Trésor Bleu Exclusive

Beautifully preserved, pewter and silver surround one-sided Lourdes pendant, .7 inches wide.  Profile image of Mary on the front, in two deep bleu shades of vitreous enamel:  sapphire and cobalt.  This medal was part of the commemorative 100 Anniversary medals made and blessed at Lourdes back in 1958.   Necklace chain is adjustable and versatile:  14 inches long to 22 inches.  

Trésors blue are tiny pieces of French art and devotion.  Also known as "Médailles De Pelerinage" or "Medals of Pilgrimage," these little medals have had voyages from another generation, another life, another country.  The deep "ultramarine" blue is the sacred color of Mary, representing truth, hope, and faith since 200 AD.  

People of faith still undertake pilgrimages as a way of deepening their religious devotion, seeking miracles, spiritual healing, forgiveness, or for the journey itself.  The experience is not solely about reaching the end, it is about what is endured, enjoyed, and learned along the way.

All trésors bleu are pre-packaged for gifting and shipping is free within the U.S.
