Trésor Bleu Original Design
This medal is hand-crafted, in the time-honored small batch technique of vitreous enameling, made popular in Europe in the mid century. Glass is fused onto silver, with the brightness of the silver shining through the colored glass with an etherial, light-through-stained-glass appearance. Vitreous enameling was made famous by artisans like Fabergé and Lalique, vitreous enameling also became popular on Catholic Medals of Pilgrimage which peaked in the 1930s-1950s, but since that time has been replaced by plastics and resins.
This two-sided Lourdes medal, with a profile image of Mary on the front, and the Apparition at Lourdes on the verso side, is in keeping with mid-century designs that were created in France as Pilgrimage Medals for faithful who visited the sacred waters at Lourdes. This medal is in two tones of Ocean Bleu, with halos on the front and back outlined in silver. Medal is .7 inches in diameter, the size of a dime. Two shades of periwinkle blue against silver. Bleu is the holiest color, and the color of Mary since 200 AD. This medal hangs from a 1mm wheat chain in silver with an adjustable silicon ball. It can be adjusted from neck-hugging chocker up to 20 inches in length. See photos for detail. Both the medal and chain are 925 silver and have a rhodium coating to resist tarnishing. Note that since medal is glass, it can crack or chip if dropped or mishandled. Please use care.
