Trésor Bleu 

Sacré Cœur de Montmartre, Paris, France c. 1949

Rare, silver medal celebrating the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  The medal is a quatrefoil shape. The risen Christ is central and his sacred flaming heart is awakened. To either side of him are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, symbolizing the Christ as the Alpha and the Omega:  the Beginning and the End.

Medal hangs from center opening chain, adjustable 18-24 inches, with a smaller second medal featuring St. Bernadette, Lourdes, 1958.  Two drop bicone beads.  Medal is 1 inch tall, 1 inch wide.  Reverse has original engraving/stamp from 1949 from the pilgrimage and blessing at Sacré Cœur.

Trésors blue are pieces of vintage 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.
