Origin: Lourdes, France,
Trésor Bleu Exclusive
Beautiful, rare, bleu green medaille with a stunning image of St Anthony holding Jesus, a metaphor of Anthony's closeness with Christ. .8 inches in width, under the size of a dime. Reverse side is perfectly intact guilloche, a technique of designing metal in a spinning pattern, then filling it with vitreous enamel (glass). This medal hangs on a rope, 14/20 gold filled chain, which catches the light beautifully. Choose from 16, 18, or 20 inches in chain length.
Trésors blue are tiny pieces of French art, history, 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 and shipping is free within the U.S.
