Item no. 706SGS2

Trésor Bleu Exclusive

Medal origin:   Basilica Lisieux, France, c. 1954

This beautiful turquoise/cobalt relief hexagon pendant necklace features St. Thérèse of Lisieux, on one side, with the Basilica Liseux on the reverse.  .4 inches in diameter.   18 inch 14/20 gold chain with alternating bar and rope chain connectors.  Flawless for its age.  Saint Thérèse is one of the most venerated saints in the world and the Basilica de Lisieux, where this medal was originally blessed, attracts over 1 million pilgrims a year from all over the world.

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 are pre-packaged for gifting.
