Delicate Sterling Silver Rosary – Figural Sacred Heart Center – Inscribed
This delightfully feminine Catholic rosary is crafted entirely in glowing sterling silver. Long and luxurious, it has excellent patina and is wonderfully suited to a woman or young lady who appreciates its grace and simple elegance.
It features slender rice-shaped ave beads that are interlocked with the same rectangular beveled links that surround the larger round paters. They glide effortlessly through your fingers and feel gently distinct despite their small size.
The squared 2-layer crucifix is adorned with luster cuts at the tips that capture the light and complement the beads. The molded corpus is heavier than usual, with nice full arms and great detail. The bottom side of the cross is marked “Sterling” and the verso is inscribed “R. Fitzgerald,” the previously owner of this precious rosary. I always imagine that personalized items held particular importance to someone in the past, and like feeling the connection to generations of believers whose faith lives on through their personal belongings.
Last but not least is the beautiful figural scapular center medal with Jesus on the front and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on the verso. The Sacred Heart is subtle yet radiant, and the Gothic style nimbus is quite elegant. Mary is cast in nice relief, and the verso is marked “Sterling” amid the stars and radiance surrounding her.
This lovely Catholic rosary is in excellent vintage condition and despite its delicate appearance, is strong, sturdy and ready for active prayer. Its size makes it perfect for carrying in a purse, and it would make a wonderful gift to someone who can appreciate it on the next phase of its devotional journey.
