Peruvian Turquoise and Sterling Silver Rosary


This rosary is fashioned with 8mm Peruvian Turquoise ave beads and 9mm openwork sterling paters, hand wrapped for security. The eye pins and chain are sterling as are the vintage 1 3/4 inch engraved crucifix and cast sterling center. The center is a recreation of an old nineteenth century French design featuring Mary on the front and Jesus on the reverse side. The crucifix is in excellent condition and was from an estate sale. It is engraved on the reverse with the initials "C. M." and the date "3-28-63", however, I feel this in no way detracts from the beauty of the piece or its value. The rosary measures 24 inches. It is my opinion that, in addition to providing better value, these vintage sterling parts add a specialness to a rosary, and if a vintage rosary can be restored to its original beauty, it's even more meaningful because it has a history. I hope you agree. This keepsake will be carefully packaged and comes with its own zippered, ostrich-look case. For a closeup of crucifix and center, look here.
