Item No. 1101-52LS
Origin: Joan of Arc Medal: Domremy France, 1940
Beautifully preserved, very large medal of Joan of Arc, 1.1 inch in diameter. On the front is Joan of Arc in profile. Joan of Arc, a peasant girl living in medieval France, believed that God had chosen her to lead France to victory in its long-running war with England. With no military training, Joan convinced the embattled crown prince Charles of Valois to allow her to lead a French army to the besieged city of Orléans, where it achieved a momentous victory over the English and their French allies, the Burgundians. Medal is accented by two smaller bleu enamel French medals: Guardian Angel (Raphael style) in two tones of bleu, and vintage Lourdes connector, both 3mm wide.) Center opening chain, adjustable from choker to 28 inches long. See images for perspective.
Trésors blue are pieces of French art and devotion. Also known as "Médailles De Pelerinage" or "Medals of Pilgrimage," these medals have had voyages from another generation, another life, another country. 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.
