Catholic Rosary Prayer Beads, Green Nephrite Jade & Silver (Greenstone)
Catholic rosary prayer beads, featuring beautiful mid-green nephrite jade (greenstone) beads with an antiqued silver center medal and crucifix. The heart-shaped center medal features the Virgin Mary, with Jesus crowned with thorns on the back.
I've used 6mm round nephrite jade beads for the Hail Mary decades, and 8mm round beads for the Our Father prayer beads. Each bead has been hand-linked with silver rosary wire, which gives the rosary very pleasant drape as it passes through your fingers. The Our Father beads are finished with wee silver-plated end caps and are wire-wrapped to give extra strength where needed.
This well-made rosary will last for many years of prayer. It is a smaller rosary than some of the ones I make as it has 6mm round beads, making a nice lightweight set that is reasonably compact as well.
The heart-shaped center medal shows Our Lady of Grace on the front and Jesus crowned with thorns on the other side. The crucifix has flared lily ends on the arms. Both pieces are made in Italy and are gold-plated pewter.
Length from mid-back to end of crucifix: 47cm (18.5")
Crucifix: 3.5cm (1.4")
The loop is large enough to pass over the head if wishing to wear the rosary.
This rosary is suitable for men or women for regular personal use, or it would make a thoughtful gift for a special occasion such as baptism or confirmation. It comes in a handmade (by me) lined cotton rosary pouch to keep it in - you can let me know what rosary pouch you would prefer in the drop-down options.
