Sarcelle a Lourdes Necklace
Item № 1120-13MS
Origin: Lourdes, France, c. 1944
Trésor Bleu Exclusive
Beautiful Art Deco, pale bleu enamel Our Lady of Lourdes. The front pictures a silver relief image of our Lady, the reverse is a beautifully articulated Apparition image. The original Apparition at Lourdes occurred in 1858 with Saint Bernadette as the 14 year old witness. This medal is 1 inch high, .6 inches wide. It hangs on a 925 sterling silver chain which catches the light beautifully. 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.
