Rose Pink Pearl Catholic Rosary Prayer Beads
This lovely woman's rosary has vintage-style appeal with colors of deep rose pink Swarovski pearls and antiqued bronze throughout. A beautiful rosary to use for regular personal prayer and lovely to look at as well.
I've used 8mm round genuine Swarovski® pearls in a color called Powder Rose for the decades of Hail Mary beads, and handmade lampwork glass beads for the Our Father and Glory Be beads for this full-size rosary. All the pearls are hand-linked with brass rosary wire, which means the rosary flows smoothly through your hands in use.
The larger lampwork glass beads are wire-wrapped and finished with layers of antiqued brass bead caps and beads. Wire-wrapping these beads both gives extra strength to the rosary where needed most as well as giving it that unique handmade look.
The center medal is bronze with an image of the Sacred Heart on the front and a small image of the Holy Family on the other side. The detailed bronze crucifix is a style known as a "budded cross" where the arms end in 3 "buds" which represent the Holy Trinity of God the Father, the Son and Holy Ghost. It is also said that taken together, the 12 buds represent the 12 Apostles going out from the cross with the Good News of Christ's resurrection.
Length when hanging: 58cm / 22.8 inches
Center medal: 2cm / 0.8 inch
Crucifix: 4.5cm / 1.8 inches tall.
The rosary is well-made for years of prayer and is covered by my personal guarantee. It comes in a handmade lined cotton rosary pouch to keep it in and will be attractively wrapped.
