CENTERPIECE MEDAL: This is a solid bronze hand-cast 1.5″ tall design depicting our Blessed Mother Mary in a Gothic temple.
THE CRUCIFIX: This is a solid bronze crucifix custom designed by the Owner/Artist- Arasely Rios of Seraphym Designs. It was inspired by her many visits to the Mission at San Juan Capistrano. The inscription that reads “Resurgam” is a Latin word that translates to “I shall rise again” The Corpus is a replica of the Corpus found at the Altar of the Saint Serra Chapel at the mission. The dangle medals depict a rose and a lily. These designs are found at the Saint Serra Chapel and were hand painted by the Native Americans in the time the Chapel was built. The rose is a symbol of our Blessed Mother Mary. The crown of thorns and the lily is a symbol of Purity and Chastity
ANGEL WING: Each design comes with the trademark Seraphym 1″ tall 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 medals.
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.
