Hexagone Argent Lourdes Necklace
Item No. MS02272
Origin: Lourdes, France, c. 1940
So unique and beautiful, a hexagon-shaped frame around a two-toned blue on blue enamel, relief image of Mary on one side and the Apparition at Lourdes (1858) on reverse. This is the first medal we've seen with this design. Stunning vintage condition, aside from small chip on reverse Apparition scene.
Medal itself is .7 inches in diameter. It hangs from our most popular box chain, 925 silver, that can be adjusted all the way from choker (15 inches) up to 28 inches. Drop bead (.4 inches) provides a great accent to the piece.
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.
