This is a pair of French clip earrings in an antique bronze finish and features a 1954 6f French stamp depicting the town Lourdes. The Stamp depicts Lourdes Rosary Basilica.

Lourdes is a small market town lying in the foothills of the Pyrenees in south-western France. In 1858 Lourdes rose to prominence in France and abroad due to the Marian apparitions seen by the peasant girl Bernadette Soubirous, who was later canonized. Shortly thereafter the city became one of the world's most important sites of pilgrimage and religious tourism.

Today Lourdes hosts around six million visitors every year from all corners of the world. This constant stream of pilgrims and tourists transformed quiet Lourdes into the second most important center of tourism in France, second only to Paris.

The images were taken from real, used, vintage postage stamps to make an asymmetrical pair of earrings and may have post office cancellation marks.

Size of earring is 18mm and they are lead and nickel free.

Earrings are water resistant but not waterproof, I recommend removing before showering, bathing or swimming.
