This magnificent vintage big and heavy sterling silver and oval crystal bead rosary is outstanding in its high quality, large size, and excellent condition. The 58 oval crystal beads measure 12mm long and have a gorgeous, sparkling cut that makes the facets super-brilliant. This long rosary measures 41" around the neck with another 8" drop.
The sterling medal is signed "Walbro Sterling" and the crucifix is signed "Sterling Chapel". The design is somewhat modernist, so I think it dates from 1960-1975. It is very weighty at 82 grams. The condition is pristine - no wear, nicks, damage of any kind, and the sterling has not been polished, so it has a nice, warm glow from the age patina. It will arrive gift boxed.
