One of the earliest Christian festivals, Ascension Day marks the end of the Easter season. The Feast of the Ascension of Jesus Christ commemorates Jesus's bodily Ascension of  into Heaven. To celebrate this reminder that we must follow Christ, we present a Miraculous Revival creation combining two antique sterling silver medals: a 3/4-inch round Notre Dame De France Priz Pour Nous (Our Lady of France Pray for Us) and a 7/8-inch,  P. Sang de N. S. J. C. Recueilli Au Pied de la Croix (Blood of Christ Collected at the Foot of the Cross).

The Our Lady of France devotional commemorates the statue of Our Lady made from the metal taken from 213 Russian cannons captured during the Crimean War and given to the town of Le Puy-en-Velay by the Emperor Napoleon III. The beautiful statue of the Blessed Virgin, depicted on the front of the medal, has looked out over the town of Le Puy-en-Velay since 1860. On the back of the medal is an image of the Cathedral of Notre Dame du Puy, one of the oldest Marian sanctuaries in Europe, a center of pilgrimage since the 5th century, and the site of one of the first recorded apparitions of the Blessed Virgin.

The rare Blood of Christ medal recognizes Joseph of Arimathea who collected the precious relics of Christ's blood after the crucifixion on the front. The back of the symbolic medal, inscribed Relique du P  Sang Du N.S. J.C. Protegez Nous (Relic of the Blood of Christ Protect Us) features a detailed image of the Chalice housing the blood collected by Arimathea and brought from the Holy Land  which is now resting in the Basilica of the Holy Blood in Bruges, Belgium. Both historical devotionals from France, and a delicate white freshwater pearl, are displayed on 18-inch, 1.3 mm sterling silver chain.
