Religious medallions have been an integral part of the 19th and 20th century chic French jewelry wardrobe. These medallions became, particularly int he second half of the 19th century, a marker or gaming chip in the life long journey to an eternity of happiness in the next world. Acquired at baptisms, communions, marriages, and above all, pilgrimages (read: medallion collection missions,) medallions were not only gotten by those that completed the religious objective, but minted for loved ones as offerings to the saint most honored by the performance of these journeys and rituals.

One of the best ones I brought back on my recent pilgrimage to the land of exceptional jewels, a (higher than) 18ct French medallion of the virgin mother, holding her son, with a beautiful inscription dated 28 Mars, 1910, this beautiful pendant has just celebrated its 113th birthday. Signed by the artist, which I've never seen before, and wonderfully cast in the softest of renderings. This will be an iconic addition to any collection.
