Shipping calculated at checkout.
This handsome heirloom rosary is one of our most popular! Artisan crafted, it features banded brown Tiger-eye gemstones for both the “Hail Mary” and “Our Father” beads. The vintage bronze “Auspice Maria” center is the Madonna’s signature monogram, an interlacing “A” and “M” for Auspice Maria which is Latin for “under the protection of Mary.” The crown on top represents Mary as Queen of Heaven. The original piece is likely from the later 1800s. The Penal Crucifix, c. 1700s, originated in Ireland for those making the pilgrimage to Lough Derg. To ensure excellence and longevity, our center and crucifix are cast in solid bronze using the lost wax method. The center measures 11/2” and the Penal crucifix measures 21/2.” A descriptive write up comes with each rosary.
