If you're looking for a substantial sterling and all mother-of-pearl Catholic rosary, consider this hand-made beauty! It features large, oblong beads with larger paters, all of which are nicely shaped yet retain their natural and organic shape.
The pins appear to be hand wired and wrapped to prevent bead loss and make the rosary secure. There are also twisted butterfly loops at the center and crucifix to keep them safely attached to the rosary. Although the hand-formed links sometimes kink, they seem to self-correct just by handling the rosary. In all, the construction makes this rosary quite secure for its size and weight.
At the center is a traditional scapular center medal that is hallmarked sterling. Jesus has a lovely Gothic-style nimbus and prominent Sacred Heart. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel is beautifully rendered on billowing clouds with stars and rays of light encircling her head. The simple mother of pearl crucifix has a molded corpus with dark patina and an INRI plaque.
In pristine condition, this religious devotional is an excellent choice for anyone desiring larger beads. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
