Lourdes Pilgrimage Cross - Belgium Necklace
Item № 1100-82LS
Trésor Bleu Exclusive
Medal origin: Brussels, Belgium, 1958
This stunning 1.2 inch wide and tall cross pendant is a national pilgrimage medal commemorating the voyage to Lourdes in honor of its 100th anniversary, in 1958. On the front is a beautiful relief image of the Apparition from 1858, with Mary at the Grotto with Saint Bernadette as the 14 year old witness. Gold plating is faded but still visible, a beautiful patina against high-quality silver. On the reverse are commemorative words regarding the "Pelérinage" or pilgrimage from 1958. We've paired the substantial medal with a small Lourdes square pendant, 3mm wide. The medal hangs from an adjustable chain, which can go from choker to 28 inches in length. Middle-opening chain, with loop connector.
An elegant, vintage, understated, timeless piece.
