Trésor Bleu Exclusive
Origin: Lourdes, France, c. 1941
Unique Lourdes pendant with open work "star" surround. On the front is a relief profile of Our Lady, blessed Virgin Mary in gorgeous shades of teal and cobalt blue. The reverse is a teal tone image of the original Apparition at Lourdes, which occurred in 1858 with Saint Bernadette as the 14 year old witness. The pendant is .6 inches in height and .6 inches in width. It hangs on a light-catching silver box chain, 16 inches long. Chain made in Italy. See picture for size references. Please NOTE: there is damage and chips on the reverse side, from its years of prayer and years of wear. Priced accordingly, but the front is in pristine condition.
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.
