Golden Our Lady Necklace - 1882 Engraved
Item № 1125-976MG
Origin: Marseillle, France, 1882
Stunning gold vermeil Miraculous image of Mary, with the back engraved with "LS 12 Mars 1882" on the reverse, or March 12, 1882. It hangs on a double chain (modern hardware) 20 inches long, pyrite beads in rosary style. The medal itself is of unknown origin, but it was likely given as a Confirmation gift to a young woman. March 12 1882 was a Saturday. The condition of the bale and wear of the medal in general shows it was rarely worn, if at all.
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 Bleu are pre-packaged for gifting.
