It hangs on a silver with rhodium coating rope chain, to keep from tarnishing. Chain made in Italy and is 20" long but is adjustable via a silicon ball down to choker length.
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.
