Catholic First Communion Rosary, White & Gold, Handmade in New Zealand
There are certain moments in a child's life that call to be marked with a special gift. In many families the child's First Holy Communion is a time when a special set of rosary beads is given as a lasting reminder of this important day. This traditional white and gold Catholic rosary will be used for years to come.
I've used 8mm round pure white Czech glass beads for the decades, and 10mm round beads for the Our Father & Glory Be beads. They are all linked with gold rosary wire, and I've finished the larger beads with collars of sparkly rhinestone crystals. The larger beads are also wire-wrapped which gives extra strength where needed and gives the rosary that unique handcrafted look.
At the center of the rosary is a gold-plated Communion Cup with Host, and the traditional cross has arms ending in lillies. Both are excellent quality, made in Italy.
Length from mid-center to end of crucifix: 57cm / 22.5"
Center medal: 2cm / 0.8"
Crucifix: 3.75cm / 1.5"
This lovely full-length rosary comes in a handmade (by me) rosary pouch to keep it in and will be attractively wrapped.
