Stella Maris Rosary, Our Lady Star of the Sea, Blue Swarovski Pearls
This handmade Catholic Stella Maris rosary has pale blue Swarovski® crystal pearls for the Hail Mary beads, silver pewter shells for the Our Father prayer beads & includes a medal of Our Lady, Star of the Sea.
Our Lady Star of the Sea (Stella Maris) is one of the Virgin Mary's names. Stella Maris is seen as a sign of hope and as a guiding star for Christians, especially those who love the oceans of the world - but equally as much for those who "sail the seas of life".
The pearls are linked into the rosary by hand with silver-plated rosary wire, and the shell beads are wire-wrapped to give extra strength where needed. This rosary will last for many years of prayer.
The center medal has Our Lady of Mount Carmel on the front with the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the back. The crucifix is a "radiant" style with a burst of light behind the figure of Christ, signifying His resurrection, and a medal of Stella Maris hangs alongside.
Under the name Stella Maris, the Virgin Mary is believed to intercede as a guide and protector of those who travel or seek their livelihoods on the sea. This would also be a lovely wedding rosary for anyone traveling or marrying near the sea, or with a special affinity for the oceans of the world.
Length from mid-back to end of cross: 58cm (22.75")
Crucifix: 5cm (2")
Beads: 8mm Swarovski pearls, 15mm silver-plated shell beads.
This full-size rosary comes in a handmade (by me) cotton rosary bag to keep it in, and will be attractively wrapped.
