Perfect and petite, this gorgeous French rosary features glowing brown glass beads that I nearly mistook for brown nacre or mother of pearl. The iridescence is beautiful as are the variations in tone and color that make the beads look organic. They are mounted in gilded pins with sections of elongated link chain surrounding the paters.
At the center is a glowing round medal with a serene profile of Mary, our Blessed Mother. She looks especially youthful in this rendering, which is surrounded by a simple raised cuff. The beautiful 2-layer crucifix has a nicely detailed molded corpus with an Art Deco style cross beneath. The ends are adorned with geometric-looking hearts with linear designs etched into the arms of the cross. The verso on both medal and crucifix is plain.
The energy of this Catholic rosary is joyful and inspiring in its refined beauty. Clearly meant for a woman, it is large enough for active prayer and small enough to carry comfortably in your purse. Its superb vintage condition also makes it an excellent religious gift for a special young lady. Definitely a special rosary you're sure to love! Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
