Beautiful rare Lourdes medal in high-quality silver with original maker's mark.  Front side features Our Lady of Lourdes with gold wash halo, with some fading but still in very good condition.  Verso features a unique monogram of NDL (Notre Dame d'Lourdes).  This medal has stood the test of time since the 1950s and will last for generations more.  Hangs on a double rope chain in 14/20 gold, which catches the light and is tarnish-resistant.

Trésors blue are tiny pieces of French art, history, 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.
