Catholic Rosary for Boys and Men, Saint Benedict Medal
Black hematite and silver is a great combination for a smaller rosary with distinct masculine appeal - a perfect rosary for a man, or a boy's first communion or confirmation gift. At the center is a medal of Saint Benedict which has his ward (prayer of protection) on the other side.
The Hail Mary beads are 6mm round, each separately hand-linked with silver rosary wire which gives nice drape through the fingers. The Our Father beads are 10mm hematite oval twists, which I have wire-wrapped for extra strength where needed most. The silver pewter crucifix has black enamel inlay and a smooth back.
The smaller size beads in this rosary are perfect for young fingers, or for adults who prefer a lighter rosary - and is ideal for anyone with a special affinity for St Benedict.
Length from mid-back to end of crucifix: 46cm (18.1 inches)
Center medal: 2cm
Crucifix: 3.75cm (1.5 inches)
This is a well-constructed rosary that will last for years of prayer, and is suitable for rugged hands. This rosary has a cool, smooth feel through the hands. It comes in a handmade (by me) lined cotton pouch to keep it in.
