Trésor Bleu

On the front is an image of St. Maria Goretti, in teal blue, surrounded by deep shades of cobalt blue. Maria Goretti is the youngest saint to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church, famously known for being stabbed 14 times during an attempted rape. Also on the front, following the outline in small lettering is written "St. Maria Goretti."  The reverse is an image of St. Gemma Galgani, in a piercing teal blue, an Italian mystic often referred to as "The Daughter of Passion."  The reverse also includes an engraving of her name. The pendant hangs on a 17 inch adjustable silver chain with a .3 inch crystal rosary bead drop. See attached pictures for size references.

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.
