Trésor Bleu Exclusive

A beautiful bleu medal depicting Our Lady of Lourdes:  Profile of Mary on the front, blank on reverse.  Strikes on bale show maker's mark and French authenticity, and silver quality (800).  Vitreous enameling is the mid-century French technique of melding glass on silver.  The details and craftsmanship on this .9 inch tall medal are so stunning.   

It hangs on an 18" rope gold filled chain, which catches the light beautifully.   

Trésors blue are tiny pieces of French art, history, 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.
