This lovely rosary features faceted pressed glass beads with a marbled effect in shades of pink, purple and black. Sturdily mounted on a silver chain, they are strong enough for a child and feminine enough to appeal to any young girl (or woman, for that matter).
The connecting medal has a beautiful 6-pointed design with cutouts that emphasize the scalloped edge. Jesus and His Sacred Heart are on the front and a smaller image of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel is on the verso. The stamped crucifix appears to have two layers, and has excellent ornamentation and detail on the cross... from the flowers and symbols at the points to the circular nimbus with IHS and a thorny border. Both medal and crucifix are stamped "Chapel" and "Italy."
This rosary is "new old stock" from a jewelry store that went out of business in the 1980s. It is pristine and would make a wonderful gift for someone who appreciates vintage quality and new condition.
