The Ave Maria beads are dark peacock blue/dark blue Grade A round freshwater pearls with good luster and sheen. The closeup photo of the pearls shows the true color of them. The Pater Noster beads are high quality multi-faceted crystal AB barrel beads. These are uncirculated old stock from the estate of jewelry designer Neva Burba and they are stunning. The beads have been capped with vintage sterling silver filigree bead caps. These are American Made quality vintage bead caps. There are tiny blue Swarovski crystals for added shine. Each bead was wire-wrapped by hand in argentium sterling silver wire, which does not tarnish as quickly as sterling silver. Argentium silver 935 is a modern sterling silver alloy, containing 93.5% silver, in which the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) is modified by removing some of the copper and adding the metalloid germanium. It meets the standard for Britannia silver (95.84% silver) hallmarking. The Adoration of Angels Crucifix and French Fleur de Lys centerpiece are antique museum pieces that have been recast in sterling silver. Each bead is wire-wrapped by hand with sterling silver wire to ensure a rosary that will last for lifetimes. The Rosary is 29 inches long.
The Rosary has not been blessed, so be sure and have it blessed by your parish priest.
Care and Cleaning: Clean the beads with a damp soft cloth. The medals are made of solid sterling silver and will tarnish; they can be cleaned with any good silver cleaning product - but take care not to get the cleaning fluids on the beads. I hope you enjoy praying it as much as I enjoyed designing and making it.

If you say the Rosary faithfully until death, I do assure you that, in spite of the gravity of your sins, you shall receive a never fading crown of glory. For even if you are now on the brink of damnation, even if you have one foot in hell, even if you have sold your soul to the devil…sooner or later you will be converted and will amend your life and save your soul. If–you say the Rosary devoutly every day of your life.~St. Louis De Montfort
