Robert's Heirloom Rosaries, Just Listed! Rosary Of St. James

This is the Rosary of St. James

Construction and facts about your 5 decade Rosary: This Rosary is 34 inches in length.

AAA Grade 8 MM Faceted Blue Chalcedony Agate and .925 Sterling Silver. The small connectors beads are made of solid nickle.

James, son of Zebedee (died 44AD) was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus. He was a son of Zebedee and Salome, and brother of John the Apostle. He is also called James the Greater to distinguish him from James, son of Alphaeus, who is also known as James the Less.

James is described as one of the first disciples to join Jesus.

The feast day of St James is celebrated on 25 July on the liturgical calendars of the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran and certain Protestant churches.

James' emblem was the scallop shell (or "cockle shell"), and pilgrims to his shrine often wore that symbol on their hats or clothes. The French for a scallop is coquille St. Jacques, which means "cockle (or mollusk) of St James". The German word for a scallop is Jakobsmuschel, which means "mussel (or clam) of St. James"; the Dutch word is Jacobsschelp, meaning "shell of St James".
The beautiful rosary center is the Scalloped Shield and emblem of St. James. The beautiful Scalloped Crucifix is in concert and fitting for this gorgeous rosary and adds the final touches to this beautiful devotional sacramental.

This is considered an “unbreakable rosary.” -as each bead is individually wire wrapped and should never come apart. However- dropping it on a hard surface may crack the beads. You should always take great care of this sacramental. Click Here For Further Details
