Trésors blue are tiny pieces of 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. 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, and shipping is free within the U.S. Note that vitreous enamel, despite this medals age, is a form of glass, and can be shattered upon dropping or impact with a hard object. Please remove before showering or exposing to chemicals to prolong its life.

An information sheet of known origin, date and authenticity is included with every order. Trésors Bleu are meant to be gifted, even to yourself. A complimentary gift box is included with every order.
