Well-preserved vintage condition pendant cross with with two-tone relief image of Our Lady in profile on the front.  Reverse is an image of the Apparition from 1858.  This cross hangs from a 1 inch drop, 2 bicone beads, with a rosary link connector.  Chain is a center-opening 18 inch chain, box link.  Medal itself is .8 inch tall, .6 inches wide.  

Trésors blue are tiny pieces of history, 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.
