Trésor Bleu Exclusive - Rare

Stunning, elegant, grand deep blue round portrait medal with Jesus with Sacred Heart, with gorgeous tones of deep cobalt blue and teal blue.  The medal is surrounded by intact marcasites, typical of the era.  The reverse is a perfect image of the Mary with Jesus in her lap.  No visible tarnishing and will stand up to many more years of prayer, years of wear.  This medal is .7 inches in diameter.  The medal was sold and blessed at Sacre Cœur in 1951.   It hangs on a twisted rope silver chain that is adjustable from choker length (less than 16 inches) all the way up to 22 inches.  See images for size versatility.  Chain made in Italy.  Trésors blue are 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 (First Class) within the U.S.
