Some rosaries instantly lift your spirits and inspire devotion. This pristine Catholic rosary is one of them. Everything about it is brightness and light, sparkle and shine... crisp, clean and spiritually energetic.

Likely crafted in the 1940s, it is comprised of faceted round glass beads that are an icy shade of blue. They are beautifully offset by gold-filled components, which adds to the ethereal quality of this devotional. The pater beads are double capped and surrounded by fancy spacer links instead of chain. All beads, caps and links are original and in superb vintage condition.

Despite its feminine appearance and Marian blue beads, this rosary carries a strong energy of Jesus. The small, ornate center features a simple raised cross that is echoed on the Art Deco-style crucifix. Against the shiny cross-within-a-cross is a heavy-weight molded corpus that boldly proclaims Christ’s sacrifice. The verso is engraved with a maker’s mark and “Gold Filled” at the bottom with no mention of karat or weight.

Gold filled denotes a layer of gold pressure bonded to another metal and where the gold is a designated weight of the total product. (Most typical is 1/20 weight.) Unlike gold plating, gold filled looks and lasts like solid gold because the outer surface IS solid gold. It is popular as an economical alternative that offers the same characteristics such as strength, durability and beauty. Please note that only the crucifix is marked but based on the sheen, color and feel of the rest of the rosary, I believe it is entirely gold filled.

This religious treasure would make an inspired gift for a bride or one who appreciates its “new” feel and vintage aesthetic. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
