Trésor Bleu Exclusive

Medal origin:  Lourdes, France, c. 1953

Our Lady of Lourdes in two tones of stunning vitreous enamel, with Mary, in profile, on the front, surrounded by gold vermeil.  The French were masters at perfecting the art of high-quality gold plating, to look and last like genuine 14k gold.  The reverse features the original apparition at Lourdes, which occurred in 1858.  Medal is a dainty .7 inches in diameter and has stamps on bale showing the French maker mark and authenticity.

Trésors blue are tiny pieces of French art, history 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 specially pre-packaged for gifting.
