Exquisite craftsmanship and dainty detail, this gold vermeil (high quality thick gold plating, the French standard of its time) has a relief image of St. Christopher carrying Jesus across the river. Christopher is the patron saint of new journeys and travel. Medal itself is .55 inches in diameter. Stamping on jump ring shows authenticity, quality of gold vermeil, and original French origin.
Trésors blue are tiny pieces of French art and devotion. Also known as "Médailles De Pelerinage" or "Medals of Pilgrimage," these little blue 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.
