This sweet silverplated Catholic rosary is hallmarked by Creed, makers of fine rosaries for over 75 years. Perfectly sized for a special child or to carry with you throughout the day, it features lovely corrugated round beads and a delightful heart motif on the center and crucifix.
The center is a cutwork heart with a Miraculous Medal in the center. The traditional Marian symbols are on the verso, as is the Creed hallmark. The stamped crucifix also uses cutwork and hearts on each of the arms, with a solid corpus set high on the cross. This too is hallmarked on the verso. Both center and crucifix are available in Creed's current catalog with different combinations of beads.
That said, the corrugated silverplated beads appear to be discontinued, which is a shame because they are very pretty. They have nice deep grooves and are beginning to develop dark patina in the creases. The ribbing makes each bead feel distinct and there are ample sections of chain around the paters to facilitate prayer.
This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the special charm of this discontinued Creed rosary. It is nicely weighted for a smaller size rosary and in excellent condition. Make it yours today! Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
