BEADS: Genuine high quality 8 & 10mm natural Black Onyx.
CENTERPIECE MEDAL: This is a solid bronze hand cast 2″ tall elaborate medal detailing Our Lady of Peace. An inscription dated 1693 is inscribed into the medal. A Stunning design!
THE CRUCIFIX: This is a solid bronze stunning 2.5″ tall crucifix of European origin depicting a rose at each end of the cross representing the continued devotion of Our Blessed Mother Mary.
EXTRA ATTACHED MEDALS: Attached is a 1″ tall oval medal detailing St. Junipero Serra, as well as a double-sided 1.25″ tall rectangular design depicting St. Francis of Assisi on one side, and St. Claire on the other side.
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.
REPAIR: If your Rosary gets into an accident (God Forbid!) we will fix it at no charge to you within one year of purchase not including shipping.
