welcome to trésor bleu!

About Trésor Bleu

We believe that jewelry is not about what you have, it's about who you are.  Trésor Bleu honors history, faith and journeys.  We import all of our medals from France.  In addition to being lifetime-ago gifts, these medals give a special continuation of blessings now that Trésor Bleu is bringing them alive, again.

Most of the medals were originally acquired through Catholic pilgrimages.   Catholic pilgrimages in France date back to the Middle Ages, but peaked in the late 19th to mid 20th Century, after the Apparitions at Lourdes (1858) through after World War II.  While people still travel and take pilgrimages to these places, modern consumerism has broken the magic of having a memento so special it could only be from one place, one time, with one blessing.  These items are special.  Not only to the eventual recipient, but to all who wore them before.

Most of the medals are blue (bleu) because blue is the "color of Mary," representing truth, honor and holiness.  If they weren't worn by the recipient, these medals were given to others during significant Sacraments or milestones:  First Communion, Baptisms, Confirmations, and Marriages.   All of our medals were acquired first-hand from French estate sales, brocantes (upscale French flea markets) or by individuals.  Please take care of your trésor the way it has been taken care of in the past:  with veneration.   

Enjoy your trésor bleu, the journey, and the blessings it brings.
