St. Hubert Cross Necklace

Item No. 917MSC3

Trésor Bleu Exclusive

Origin:  France, c. 1952

Rare, well-preserved vintage condition pendant cross with with two-tone relief image of St. Hubert.  Saint Hubertus or Hubert (c. 656 – 30 May 727) became Bishop of Liège in 708 AD. He is a Christian saint who is the patron saint of hunters, mathematicians, opticians, and metalworkers.

.8 inch tall, .6 inches wide.   Set on a light-catching 925 silver chain, adjustable to length up to 24 inches long.  Trésors blue are tiny pieces of history, 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 and shipping is free within the U.S.
