1909 Grand Communion Necklace

Item No. LS03087

Trésor Bleu Exclusive

Origin:  France, 1909

RARE, one-of-a-kind

Beautifully preserved, large but thin, rare handmade medal of 1.25 inches in diameter.  On the front is an engraved sacred chalice, representing (First) Communion.  Surrounded by grape and wheat leaves, classic Communion symbolism of the bread and wine at Eucharist.  On the back is a perfectly imperfect, hand-scrolled, "Ta Communion, 1909, C.C.," or "Your Communion, 1909, C.C."  The unique medal is paired with a second, smaller medal, a blue hexagonal Mary with Lourdes imagery on the reverse.   It's a petite 6 mm tall, 4 mm wide, perfectly preserved, c. 1958.  

Both medals are set on a drop filigree connector (.5 inches long), from our square box chain, adjustable 925 silver chain.  The chain can be adjusted from choker size all the way up to 28 inches long.

Trésors blue are 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.
