Robert's Heirloom Rosaries- Newly Listed on Etsy! Rosary Of Ireland- Our Lady Of Knock Queen Of Ireland
This is the Rosary Of Ireland- Our Lady Of Knock Ireland
Construction and facts about your 5 decade Rosary:
This Rosary is made with-
The Pater Nosters are 12 MM Azurite Chrysocolla Rondels and 10 MM Purple Stone.
The Aves are all natural AAA Grade 8 MM Azurite Chrysocolla. The connectors are 6 and 3 MM in size and are also Azurite Chrysocolla. This rosary is just covered with Bali Sterling Silver.
All components are .925 Solid Sterling Silver. The beautiful rosary center of Our Lady carrying the Infant Jesus is flanked on both sides with the Irish Shamrock. Written in Latin around the top is, "Mater Dei Ora Pro Nobis" which translates in English to, "Holy Mary Mother Of God Pray For Us". This same wording is contained within the Hail Mary Prayer. As you can see in one of the photos- the back of the rosary center and the crucifix are available for engraving. The crucifix is called the Penal Crucifix. During the period of time when the Irish Christians were being persecuted the Penal Crucifix was designed so it could easily be hidden in the sleeve. This rosary is a tribute to Our Lady Of Knock Queen Of Ireland. Click Here for additional photos and Info.
