Two vintage rosaries from Italy brought together to make a gorgeous necklace!
Two vintage rosaries from Italy brought together to make a gorgeous nouveau vintage style necklace! Opaque white acrylic beads, faux pearls, a 2 inch crucifix again, vintage from Italy. On the first rosary chain that is 17 inches in length is a vintage rhinestone earring with a center clear rhinestone in the navette faceted cut, surrounded by smaller clear rhinestones.
The second rosary chain has dual focal points, the first is a Miraculous Medal. Catherine Laboure on November 27,1830 had her third vision of the Virgin Mary. During the visit Mother Mary described a medal she wished to be made that is simply a visible sign of the inner devotion the wearer has to Mary and to her Son, Jesus. She told Catherine, “All who wear it will receive great graces; they should wear it around the neck. Graces will abound for persons who wear it with confidence.” It took many years for Catherine to convince her Father Confessor to speak to the Archbishop of Paris who ordered the medal to be made. Many miracles have been attributed to the Miraculous Medal over the years. Below this medal is a beautiful crucifix bearing Mary’s son Jesus the Savior and son of God as he sacrifices himself for all of mankind.
This is a powerful religious work, bearing the prayers and blessings of those who carried these reimagined rosaries and symbols of our Lord and his Mother. A gorgeous work of art, this necklace is a dedication to the great “I AM”
Please remember this is a piece of vintage or retro jewelry. Most of it is used and will show some signs of “normal wear” that comes with age. We are very careful not to destroy any patina that may have formed as we think it adds to the beauty of these pieces. Of course you may want to polish or clean off the patina, and that is totally up to you. As we describe each piece if we find any flaws or defects we will point them out in the description. If we have replaced clasps or made other repairs, we will also note these in the description.
