St Benedict Rosary, Carnelian Gemstone Beads with Gold
This full-size handmade rosary is has carnelian gemstone beads and Swarovski crystals, all separately linked. so the set flows well through your hands as you pray the rosary. It features a center medal of Saint Benedict with his ward of protection, and a gold pewter crucifix that has the 4 Basillicas of Rome on the arms.
The Hail Mary beads are 8mm round carnelian, and the Our Father beads and 10mm round carnelian. The larger beads are finished with gold caps and wire-wrapping, and have Swarovski crystals separating them from the decades of smaller prayer beads.
The center connector medal shows St Benedict on one side, and his well-known ward (prayer of protection) on the other. The crucifix shows the 4 Basillicas of Roma at the end of each arm, and both pieces are good quality gold-plated pewter made in Italy.
Length center-back to end of crucifix: 64cm / 25.25 inches;
Center medal: 2cm across;
Crucifix: 5cm / 2 inches tall.
This rosary is as good to look at as it is to use - it feels cool and smooth in the hands and is well-made for many years of prayer. It comes in a handmade (by me) pouch to keep it in.
