I don't know if it's the gentle, heaven-blue color or the slender beads or the luxuriously long length, but this feminine and graceful Catholic rosary has a lot more going for it than meets the eye.
The teardrop-shaped beads are molded and hand-crafted as evidenced by the varying size and shapes. Some are longer or flatter than others, and all are original and in excellent vintage condition with no chips or fleabites. Jump rings cap and protect both ends of each bead, and are used to separate the ave beads, creating the wonderful length that makes this rosary a very pleasing handful.
The metal components are a combination of brass and silver-tone metals and the effect is just lovely. The 2-sided cutwork center is beautifully cast with full-figure representations of Jesus and His Sacred Heart and the Blessed Mother. I can't tell if she is depicted with the young Jesus or a small child but either way, her tenderness is palpable and healing.
The ornate 3-layer budded crucifix is among my favorite designs. Against a shiny, chrome-like base is a middle layer with nicely sculpted grapevines and a hint of brass. Into this is pegged a brass INRI banner and heavy-weight molded corpus. The details will capture your attention and inspire meditation and prayer.
In overall excellent vintage condition, this sturdy, feminine rosary is suitable for active prayer. It would also make a long and lovely necklace, if you are inclined to wear such religious treasures. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
