CENTERPIECE MEDALS: This is a stunning solid bronze 3″ tall hand-cast design depicting Our Lady of Mount Carmel. The inscription on the front of the medal reads “Dilecto Carmel,” which translates to, “Beloved Carmel.” The back of the medal is inscribed with a family crest with the year 1718. Often, families or individuals who had a devotion to Our Lady, would have their family crest engraved on the back of a medal and would attach a special prayer intention to it. The tiny holes at each end of the arms were used to thread a ribbon to attach these images and prayers. The medal was then laid or hung onto a holy image within a church for the intercessions of their intentions. (Replica from New Spain, 1718). 3″ tall
THE CRUCIFIX: This is a solid bronze and elaborate 3.5″ tall hand cast design depicting Fleur-De-Lys at each end of the cross symbolic the Holy Trinity and the perpetual purity of Our Blessed Mother Mary. (Replica, Spain 1800’s).
ATTACHED MEDALS: Attached to the Rosary are extra 1″ tall medals depicting St. Theresa of Avila, St. Catherine of Sienna, St. Peter, St. Benedict and the double-sided design detailing St. Francis of Assisi and St. Anthony.
ANGEL WING: Each design comes with the trademark Seraphym 1″ angel wing.
ROSARY LENGTH: Seraphym Rosaries measure between 29-32″ in length making them longer than standard rosaries. The reason behind the extra length is due in part by the wire wrapping technique that coils shut at each end of each bead. This creates a sturdy chain of beads that do not fall apart. Another factor that adds to the length is the extra components, embellishments, and medals that are used for each design.
PACKAGING: Each rosary comes in its very own unique packaging including: A burlap Rosary pouch, a Seraphym how to pray the Rosary Guide, and an item description card describing the beads and origin of the medal.
OUR UNIQUE AND RARE MEDALS: The medals bring a unique aspect to all Seraphym items. They are solid bronze or sterling silver replicas that are hand cast designs created utilizing an ancient method known as lost wax casting. Most of the medals date between the 16th century to the 19th century.
HANDMADE HEIRLOOMS: Each Seraphym Heirloom Rosary is handmade and designed to last for generations. Each bead is wire-wrapped shut making it sturdy and durable for continued use. Seraphym rosaries were the first to feature over 250 embellishments with quality detail throughout each design.
