Trésor Bleu Exclusive
Our Lady of Lourdes cloissoné technique medal, blessed and procured at Lourdes. Our Lady on the front, perfectly preserved. Reverse is blank. This medal is .65 inches high, .55 inches wide. Cloissonné technique is where enamel (glass) is laid between borders of silver, classic mid-century technique. Because of its colors and oblong look, we have dubbed this medal as the "surfboard" medal.
It hangs your choice of chains: 16 to 20 inches, gold or silver with matching jump ring.
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 and shipping is free within the U.S.
