Origin:  Lourdes, France, c. 1950

Trésor Bleu Exclusive

Beautiful round sterling pendant frame (non-vintage) encasing a copper medal with Our Lady on the front in two tones of blue, perfectly preserved.  Reverse is blank.  This medal is .75 inches in diameter, .9 inches with bale.  Medal and frame are .9 inches in diameter without bale.

It hangs on a gold 14/20 gold filled rope chain, two drop bicone beads and a center tiny vintage rosary connector (date unknown) silver, of Mary.  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.
