There's nothing somber about this vintage Catholic rosary despite its black glass beads and the dark patina on the sterling silver findings. Elegant and feminine, its unassuming beauty feels grounding and somehow comforting... certainly a nice quality for a religious devotional.

Each gently-faceted bead sparkles as it reflects the light like stars against an inky sky. Buffed but not polished, the pristine sterling silver pater beads complement the beads with their own subtle glow. Please note that there are two replacement beads that I discovered while running a magnet over the rosary. I detected two steel eye pins and upon closer inspection, found beads that are ever-so-slightly larger than the others. They are so well matched that I never noticed them while handling and measuring the rosary.

The sweet, beribboned center medal features Jesus revealing His Sacred Heart and blessing all who gaze upon Him. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel is on the verso, with both images showing mild devotional smoothing. Patina is dark and the verso is marked "Sterling."

The slender 2-layer crucifix has a variety of design elements: botanical, geometric, scrollwork; all of which combine to draw your attention to the well-defined molded corpus. The details are nicer than usual with clear facial features, a lovely drape, and sinuous legs and musculature. The plain verso with dark patina is also marked "Sterling."

This classic rosary is nicely executed and is in excellent vintage condition, ready for your prayers. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
