Brigittine or Carmelite 6 Decade Rosary, Swarovski Crystals in Gold, Large Size
Beautiful sparkling Swarovski crystal 6-decade Brigittine or Carmelite rosary. The crystal beads in the loop are 10mm round, larger than my usual rosary, making this an impressive rosary.
All the beads are linked with gold rosary wire, which means the rosary flows smoothly through the hands as you pray. The larger 12mm round Pater beads are finished with crystal collars, then wire-wrapped for strength - and to give the rosary that unique handmade look.
Length when hanging: 66cm / 26 inches;
Crucifix: 5cm / 2 inches tall;
Beads: 10mm & 12mm Swarovski AB crystals.
The center medal is known as the Miraculous Medal, or the medal of the Immaculate Conception. The crucifix is a traditional pierced filigree style with a smooth back.
The 6 decade rosary looks similar to a regular rosary, but with an extra decade of prayer beads, which gives the rosary a total of 63 Aves and 7 Pater beads. The 63 beads in the decades represent the years of Mary's life on earth before her Assumption, and the 7 larger beads honor the 7 Sorrows of the Virgin Mary.
A visually stunning rosary for a special occasion or presentation, well-made for years of prayerful use.
