Chapelet St. Joseph Antique Necklace

Item No. LS04131

Trésor Bleu Exclusive

Origin:  France, 1909 (Rosary items); Geneva, 1940 (Large Guilloche Medal)

RARE, one-of-a-kind

Custom-designed for Trésor Bleu by Marie St. Claire, an antique rosary from France has been upcycled with original glass beads and connectors, including a Y-pendant connector, original.   The necklace hangs like a 24 inch piece, but has two connected chains of the original rosary.  The smaller connector chain lays at 17 inches.   Beautifully preserved, large and rare Guilloche style pendant of St. Joseph holding Jesus.  This is a  rare handmade medal exactly one inch across, one inch high, not including bale.   Exceptional pale, grey-blue color and condition for its age.   Surrounded by roses, classic Marian and Catholic symbolism of the Holy Family.    

Trésors blue are pieces of historic 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.
