For your consideration is a beautiful, mid-century Catholic rosary that is happy, elegant, and uplifting. Well-designed and crafted of fine materials, it will delight and inspire your prayer life.
Of note are the clear beads with smooth facets and gentle swirls of blue, pink, and green within the glass. Each bead is double-capped with tiny o-rings and separated with another ring for added length. The rosary is complete with 59 beads, all of which are original and in excellent vintage condition.
The sterling components are just lovely, especially the fancy textured bar links used instead of chain. The center medal has luster cuts along the flower-like cuff with a nicely detailed portrait of Jesus and His Sacred Heart. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel is on the verso with the “RLC” hallmark and “Sterling.”
Also hallmarked is the bold, ornate crucifix with acanthus-like scrolls in the tips of the cross. The patina is wonderful, especially beneath the evocative, heavy-weight molded corpus.
The final touch is an enameled Miraculous Medal from Italy, positioned between the center and the crucifix. Its shades of blue amplify the colors in the beads and the enamel is in perfect condition.
This fantastic religious devotional is nicely sized and weighted, and is sturdy enough for regular prayer. A wonderful gift for you or a loved one who can appreciate its elegant touches and happy demeanor. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
