New from Holy Name Rosaries. The beads in this vintage Baroque style rosary are 8mm natural garnets. These beads appear black in dim light and have a beautiful deep maroon color in bright light. Many of the beads have inclusions which give them a subtly variegated appearance and also give sudden glints of light. Contrasting the garnets are large 12mm ivory colored Swarovski crystal pearls. Swarovski pearls are some of the best quality simulated pearls on the market. The center of a Swarovski pearl is crystal which is covered by 4 layers of nacre ( pearly coating). Accenting the pearls are 4mm ruby jade beads. The center and crucifix are both solid brass which has been antiqued.
