http://www.rarerosaries.com ~ 1700s ANTIQUE ROSARY OR ROSENKRANZ SILVER FILIGREE AND BLACK BEADS- This is a rare and exquisite rosary from the 1700s. It's called the Rosenkranz with Bavarian roots. The black beads are large, with each Ave Maria bead measuring 10 mm; the Pater Beads are double-capped and measure 13-14mm. We have not tested the beads which feel like crystal or glass. The configuration of the Rosenkranz is slightly different from modern day rosaries; There are additional Pater Beads at either end of the 5 decades. There are therefore 8 Pater Beads in total instead of the usual 6 in modern rosaries. Aside from that, everythng else is the same. The two Pater Beads along with the Three Hail Mary beads are made of silver and are probably replacement beads. The Cross measures 1 4/5 by 2 4/5 inches. The Center Medal is large and elaborate. It has what looks like a crown on top. The Center Medal measures 1 1/3 inches. The rosary weighs 85.9 grams. http://www.rarerosaries.com

GALLEON TREASURE - ANTIQUE SPANISH COLONIAL SILVER ROSARY, LARGE BEADS, LONG - For some 333 years, Spain conducted a galleon trade between Seville, Mexico, and the Philippines, transporting Spanish colonial goods throughout Spain's vast empire. This silver rosary hails from the Spanish Colonial days in the Philippines, the 1800s. Each Ave Maria bead measures 7mm; the Pater beads measure 9mm and are double capped. The caps of two Pater beads are different from the caps of the other two; this is barely noticeable. The necklace part measures a long 36 inches all around; the dangling part from the Center Medal to the tip of the Cross is 8 inches. The Cross measures 1 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches, and is inscribed in the back, "Dolor San Gabrel." The lovely Center Medal measures 3/4 inch and has the monograms "TDG." The rosary weighs 59.9 grams. This is a unique find - a rare authentic Spanish Colonial silver rosary.

From the collection of http://www.rarerosaries.com, 1105) CROSS AND EARRINGS MADE OF SMOKEY TOPAZ AND STERLING- This is a gorgeous heavy and substantial set made of genuine smokey topaz set in silver. The Cross measures 3 inches by 5/8 inch, and is more than 1/4 inch sideways. There are 6 beautiful smokey topaz stones, measuring 10 mm in diameter. The earrings are made of large oval stones measuring 18 mm by 15 mm. The set weighs 26 grams. The stones aer much lovelier than the picture shows; the stones are that classic browish clear color, quite lovely. What looks like white streaks on the stones are not irregularities but simply camera glare. email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit rarerosaries.com
