The double chain on these popular rosaries not only result in a beautiful look, but also a strong construction. Made in Italy, this rosary has 6mm blue glass beads and comes in a clear gift box. This style of rosary is known by many names. Some call it "The Ladder Rosary" or "Jacob's Ladder Rosary" because the design looks like the rungs of a ladder. Some also attribute the name to visions by St. Dominic, St. Francis de Sales, and Jacob in the Old Testament of souls climbing to heaven. For the graces you receive by praying the rosary some call it "The Stairway to Heaven Rosary".
The picture of this rosary did not prepare me for it's exceptional beauty and the craftsmanship is superb! I understand why it is referred to as a stairway to heaven, I am reminded of the work I must do to enter heaven. It would make an excellent gift to anyone, especially for those learning to pray the rosary.
