This lovely, five-decade Rosary bracelet was prayerfully inspired to remind the prayer of the royalty of Our Blessed Mother as the Queen Mother. Due to Kings in ancient Israel having multiple wives, it was common for the King’s mother to be Queen. The Queen Mother would act as an intercessory for the people of the kingdom with her son the King. It is my hope that this Rosary bracelet will lead the prayer to always seek the intercession of Our Blessed Mother in matters both large and small.
The Rosary bracelet was lovingly crafted using multiple shades of purple, which was the color of Royalty in ancient Israel. To create purple dye, dye-makers had to catch a mollusk found in the Mediterranean Sea, crack open the snail’s shell, extract a purple-producing mucus and expose it to sunlight for a precise amount of time. It took as many as 250,000 mollusks to yield just one ounce of usable dye, but the result was a vibrant and long-lasting shade of purple which did not fade in sunlight.
The exclusivity of the color purple for use by royalty was the reason for the Roman Soldiers placing an old purple cloak upon Our Savior during His Passion; doing so in mockery of His Kingship.
Multi-Faceted, Lavender, Crystal Rondelles are used for the Ave Maria (Hail Mary) beads. Faceted, Light Amethyst, Crystals are used for the Pater Noster (Our Father) beads which are accented with glass pearls.
The two-sided, silver centerpiece features an image of Mother Mary on the front and the words “Ave Maria” (Hail Mary) are engraved on the back.
The Italian-made, two-sided, silver, St. Benedict Crucifix has a Corpus (Body) of Lord Jesus and a Saint Benedict medal on the front and an image of St. Benedict on the back.
The bracelet can be created in sizes ranging from 6 ½ – 8 ¼” utilizing a chain enlarger/reducer and are available with either a magnetic, T-bar or Lobster clasp.
