This new Rosary features absolutely gem-quality Garnet Hail Marys and fat, 12mm AB Amethyst Our Fathers. Small Pearl connectors join the decades and the Our Fathers, and everything is surrounded in low- tarnish 925 Argentium Sterling Silver.
The Garnet beads are looped on both ends, double wrapped, then swirled one more time to make a connection so strong I guarantee it against breaking for life. Period.
The Crucifix and Anne with the young Mary Center have been cast in sterling from the original antiques, then lightly antiqued.
The Hail Marys are 6mm, classic sizing. They have a wonderful rosy red overtones, not too dark, and appear red even in low light.
Length is 26" -- Wire wrapping produces a longer-than-the-commercial Rosaries .
The Sterling Silver wire wrapping has been carefully done, with no 'stickies' from the wire. It is smooth and silky, and prays well. The wrapping gently leads your fingers from bead to bead.
Though it is longer than commercial Rosaries, it fits nicely in the hand, and takes up little room in your purse or pocket. And it will withstand a lifetime of prayer.
Instructions included, in case its been awhile...
As always,it will arrive ready for presentation--boxed in silver and in a lovely organza and velvet beaded gift bag.
Garnet and Amethyst share the stage (but I think the Garnet wins the battle)
The Aves are top tier Garnet, and the Paters are12mm disco ball cut Amethyst. The Paters may not be gem quality like the Garnet, but they are beautifully purple, and have a great presence. They are capped with my favorite Bali beadcaps.

This lovely Rosary sold out in the big sale last weekend -- but I have enough of the components to make one duplicate which I am offering here.
The Our Fathers are decoupaged Japanese beads, with a tapestry of rich colors in each bead. There is the well loved Pardon Crucifix, and St Benedict medal center in bronze .
It is sturdily made, with double crimping and wire guardians to avoid fraying the wire cable upon which all are strung. The cable wire itself is heavy, 40# test, 49-strand stainless steel.
Perfect for January birthdays! As always, it will come boxed in silver and in a lovely organza and velvet beaded gift bag.
This new Rosary features foggy quartz, also known as 'Sea Glass,' in the blue of Mary's Mantle. The Paters are faceted natural Mother of Pearl with bronze bead caps. The Crucifix is finely detailed, solid bronze, and hand cast from the antique original by a skilled artisan right here in the US.The same is true of the Madonna and Child center. Each bead has been wrapped twice on each end, making closed loops that will not break or separate. For the Hail Marys, the wire has been additionally swirled around the bead, adding beauty and strength. The wire wrap method is such a strong and durable ways of making a Rosary that I guarantee this Rosary against breaking for life. Period.
