This is a beautiful vintage rosary. The crucifix is black wood set in a metal frame, while the centerpiece is stamped with an elaborate “A M” – the Ave Maria monogram. The beads, in particular, are striking. Each one is hand carved from what we believe are large seeds. The outer layer has been cut away to reveal a luminous pink interior. They almost glow in the light!
This is a gorgeous vintage rosary. The beads are delicate ovals made of luminous mother of pearl. The centerpiece is hexagonal with an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary in profile.
