3 Decade Catholic Prayer Beads, Immaculate Conception Rosary
This pretty turquoise-blue and gold 3 decade Catholic rosary features a golden center medal of the Immaculate Conception, commonly known as the Miraculous Medal of Our Lady.
I've used lovely turquoise-blue Czech faceted glass beads for the Hail Marys, each bead hand-linked with gold rosary wire so the rosary flows nicely in your hands. The Our Father beads are Czech glass with dove impressed on each side like ancient stone tiles, and these pretty beads are finished with tiny Swarovski crystals and wire-wrapping.
The crucifix has fleur-de-lis ends on the arms and a radiant sunburst behind the figure of Christ, representing His resurrection and promise of eternal life. Both pieces are good quality made in Italy with a gold plated finish.
Three decade rosaries are popular for shorter prayer times, and for praying a six-decade rosary - you just go around the 3 decades twice. They can be handy if you are traveling as the shorter size means they are easy to carry with you, but they still have full-size beads for ease of use.
Length when hanging: 36cm / 14.25 inches
Center medal: 2cm / 0.8 inch
Crucifix: 4cm / 1.6 inches tall.
Please note that because this rosary has 3 decades rather than the usual 5 decades, it is not long enough to wear as a necklace.
This rosary is well-made for regular personal use and will last for many years of prayer. It would make a thoughtful gift, and comes attractively packaged in a handmade rosary pouch to store it in.
