Trésor Bleu

Beautiful patriotic French medal (reproduction), silver .9 inches in diameter, with the female patriot image on front, quintessential French rooster and engraving "1895" on reverse.   Heart pendant (vintage) hangs on a 9 mm connector loop with a drop crystal 4mm bead.   It hangs on a light-catching silver chain, 18 inches in length.

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.
