The Seven Sorrows of Mary are beautifully remembered with this lovely rosary. The sterling silver center is an antique-reproduction medal of the heart pierced with seven swords, each representing the Blessed Mother's sorrows: The Prophecy of Simeon, The Flight into Egypt, The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple, Mary meeting Jesus as He carried His Cross, The Crucifixion, Mary receiving the Body of Jesus from the Cross, and Jesus' Body being placed in the tomb. The sterling silver crucifix is also an antique-reproduction, and the sterling Our Father beads have been designed with attention to detail that enhances the beauty of the rosary. Genuine garnet gemstone beads -- authentically darker than many of the "ruby" garnet pieces around -- are smoothly sized at 7mm, and linked together on sterling silver wire throughout. Designed and handcrafted by artisans in the USA. (Ships separately from other items in your order.) From the CRA Collection.
