Lapis Lazuli and Sterling Silver Rosary


My latest Lapis Lazuli and Sterling Rosary! Here's a magnificent rosary featuring 8mm lapis beads for the aves and sterling silver capped and wire-wrapped beads for the paters. I've incorporated 3mm sterling silver beads at each cap end for security and design. The chain is pure sterling silver as are the eye pins and jump rings. The sterling madonna center is new, a cast creation made from an 1880's French design, but the beautiful hand-engraved and scrolled, heavy crucifix is an antique from the 1930s, bought at an estate sale and lovingly restored (by me) to its original beauty with careful polishing. The crucifix is 2 1/4 inches in length and of excellent quality, one of the nicest and most beautiful I've seen. The rosary is nicely proportioned and measures 26 inches. It is my opinion that, in addition to providing better value, the vintage sterling parts (in this case the crucifix) add a specialness to a rosary, giving it a bit of history. I hope you agree. This keepsake will be carefully packaged and comes with its own ostrich-look zippered case. For a closeup of the crucifix and center, click here.
