Trésor Bleu Exclusive - Rare design

Beautiful Lourdes Mary Profile Image on silver medal.  Silver relief floral work surround. The reverse is relief "Souvenir de ND de Lourdes," or Souvenir of Our Lady (Notre Dame) of Lourdes.  Lourdes, and the water from the spring, is attributed to countless miracles since 1858.  It measures 1 inch high, including the bale, and is .65 inches wide.  It hangs from an 18 inch silver chain with a drop bicone bead.

Trésors blue are vintage 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.  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.
