The Crucifix has the St Benedict medal inset behind Our Lord. It is substantial, 3 inches long, and a pleasure to hold.
The Rosary itself is strung on strong, 49-strand, 40# test jewelry wire and carefully double crimped
for durability. Wire guardians protect the wire from fraying where it rubs against the Miraculous Medal center and Crucifix. Contact me if you would like a 20-decade version to include the Luminous mysteries.
As always, arrives ready for presentation--boxed in silver and in a beaded organza gift bag.
