Croix de La Salette Necklace

Item No. 622MSS2

Trésor Bleu

Origin:  France, c. 1942

Unique, well-preserved vintage pendant cross with with two-tone relief image of the  Our Lady/Notre Dame de Salette, one with her standing, and the reverse with her sitting and crying. The story beings with Maximin Guiraud and Melanie Calvat tending sheep near La Salette in the French Alps, when they came across "a beautiful lady" sitting on a rock, crying with her face in her hands. The medal is .75 inch tall, .6 inches wide. Set on a light-catching chain, adjustable silver chain up to lengths up to 22 inches long.  

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.
