Éclat Carré Lourdes Necklace

Item №  1025-11MS

Origin:  Lourdes, France, c. 1950 - RARE

Trésor Bleu Exclusive

Beautiful marcasite surround on square Lourdes pendant medal with Our Lady on the front in gorgeous tones of "bleu."  The relief is much more detailed than what we usually see on Lourdes medals, it's stunning in person.  The reverse is a perfectly-preserved image of the original Apparition at the Grotto at Lourdes, which occurred in 1858 with Saint Bernadette as the 14 year old witness.  No visible tarnishing and will stand up to many more years of prayer, years of wear.  This medal is 1 inch tall, 1 inch wide.   It hangs on a 925 tarnish-resistant adjustable chain:  adjustable from 14 inches to 24 inches via a sturdy silicon ball.  Chain made in Italy.  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.
