Everything about this artisanal Catholic rosary is unique... from the scarce Marian blue beads to the fancy metal spacers and pater beads. I am unsure of its age, as the beads may be older than the components, so I will conservatively classify it as vintage.

I am always excited to come across rosaries with these robust, heavenly beads. I have some in my personal collection and assure you, they are very special. Each bead is roughly faceted, and the sizes vary because they are hand-cut. The rich color is opaque with a slightly lighter core. The rosary is complete with 59 beads, all of which are original and in excellent antique condition.

The unusual silver pater beads are elongated with eight sides. They have the same color and matte finish as the crucifix and the graceful pierced spacer links that are used instead of chain. I did not want to risk damaging the patina, so I did not test for silver content. I am willing to do so if you choose to purchase this outstanding rosary. Several paters have small pinpoint dings, none of which pierce the metal or in any way affect the integrity of the beads.

The simple crucifix is smaller and somewhat shorter than one would expect. I love how the details of molded corpus extend down the sides, making Christ look bold and substantial, as it should be.

This unique religious devotional would be a stunning addition to a quality rosary collection. That said, feel free to use it for active prayer, as it is quite sturdy and fascinating to hold. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
