Sacre Cœur Pendant - c. 1958
France, c. 1958
We love the rich bleu enamel details on this petite heart-surround medaille from mid-century France. Marian bleu combined with rich cobalt bleu in perfect relief detail. Surrounded by lace filigree, framing the medal in beautiful detail. Front has an image of Our Lady and Jesus. St. Christopher is on the reverse, the patron saint of travel and journeys. Medal is .31 inches in diameter not including bale. Hangs on your choice of chain sizes in 925 silver: 16, 18 or 20 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.
