Excellent Pearls with Silverplate and Pewter components

This Rosary features AA+ black / Peacock freshwater Pearls and a San Damiano Crucifix. It is simple, with hematite and silver plate connectors. The Our Fathers are 10mm Silver over copper. 
The Pearls have a deep glow with touches of purple and magenta -- thus the Peacock attribution. These pearls are very well matched with minimal size variation.The nacre is thick, and the shine is excellent. They have earned their AA+ rating!
The Crucifix is also known as the Crucifix of St Francis of Assisi. Why? Because it was in the small, broken down chapel at San Damiano when he heard the voice of our Lord saying, '"Francis--repair my Church, which you can see is in disrepair.". At first, the Saint thought he was to go from parish to parish, fixing chapels and churches which were in need of physical repair. Later, he came to understand that it was not the small churches who needed repair--It was the big R repair of the Bride of Christ, and he had been chosen for the job. 
This Rosary commemorates St Francis, a humble man of great spirituality. Third order Fransiscans would enjoy this simple Presentation, and I hope you do too.
Rosary is 23In--it drapes beautifully when prayed, and is silky smooth, a pleasure to hold.
It is strung on heavy 40# 49-strand steele cable and carefully crimped at all connection points.
It will arrive boxed in silver and in a glorious organza, beaded and tasseled bag, ready to present.
Thank you for looking. Blessings+
