Item no. 621MSS1
Lourdes France, c. 1950
Pristine Miraculous Medal in high quality silver. The Miraculous Medal (French: Médaille Miraculeuse), also known as the Medal of the Immaculate Conception, originated by Saint Catherine Labouré following her apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Rue du Bac, Paris, France in 1830. The genuine Miraculous Medal sold in Paris in 1950 hangs from a light-catching adjustable (up to 18 inches) silver chain and has a .4 inch Celtic-inspired drop. Height of pendant is .6 inches, width is .5 inches. Original writing etched on pendant along outline.
Trésors blue are beautiful 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.
