Marian Cross Bleu Necklace & Brooch

Item No. 1017-14SG

Trésor Bleu Exclusive - RARE

Origin:  France, c. 1930

Unique and Rare Marian emblem featured on this brooch (pin) that has been modified into a necklace.  A Marian Cross is a symbolic representation of the close connection of Mary, with the redemptive mission of Jesus. The letter "M" below the cross indicates Mary's presence at the foot of the cross.  The combination of the letter M with a Latin cross is found as part of the 1830 design of the Miraculous Medal (also known as the Medal of Our Lady of Graces based on Saint Catherine Labouré revelations).  The gold stars represent the 12 apostles.

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.  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 in the U.S.
