Trésor Bleu 

Stunning mixed metal with 14k gold in center, engraved with "Lucienne, 5-28-33" on the reverse, or May 28, 1933.  Vintage open work silver and gold pendant medal with relief image of blessed Virgin Mary.   No visible tarnishing and will stand up to many more years of prayer, years of wear. It hangs on silver, center opening 16" chain.  Chain made in Italy.

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.
