    I got these in a second hand shop in Maastricht. The pendant has a beautiful wine red stone which I suspect is synthetic. Identifying real vs. synthetic stones is not my strong point.

    The brooch is also unusual for something coming from Lourdes, France. The normal fare consists of pendants or sometimes bracelets.

    Thanks for looking/loving, CW friends!

      Lovely silver setting on the pendant. The brooch really grabs me! I actually found in my button box a little silver pendant in that blue with what looks like Mary - similar to this. How do you know this is from Lourdes?

      Hi karen - the brooch is unusual! The enameled scene in the center of the brooch is a very typical design for Lourdes souvenirs. I collect vintage items from Lourdes. Not so easy to find, even though I'm just half a day's drive from Lourdes.

      Oh these are lovely, Bonnie! Is the blue stone intaglio, hard to tell from the photos. Neither have a stamp that I can see, you said they were silver and silver-plated?
