Item No. SS03011

Trésor Bleu Exclusive

Origin:   Lisieux Basilica, France, c. 1948

Stunning, dainty St. Thérèse de Liseiux medal, .4 inches in diameter, hexagon silver surround.   Front is 2 tones of St. Thérèse in teal and cobalt, with the reverse a perfectly-preserved profile image of Mary, Our Lady, on reverse.   Drop glass bead (.3 inches total drop) on a strand of 30 seed freshwater pearls, 1.1 mm each, reminiscent of the "add a pearl" neckaces popular in the 1960s.   16 inch rope chain.   This necklace is perfect for a "less is more" look or layered with other pieces.

St. Thérese is one of the most venerated saints of the past two centuries.

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.
