Sterling Silver and Black Onyx - Renaissance Rosary with Cross 16th c.

$215.00

The rosary became standardized in the style of the Dominican rosary with 50 aves, 5 paternosters, 3 antiphon beads and a cross, after the Council of Trent in 1573.

This large rosary consists of fifty 8mm black onyx beads and silver spacers strung on a heavy silk beading thread. It has five 10 x14mm sterling silver and onyx paternosters dividing each decade. There are 3 antiphon "pathway" beads so this style would fall into the standard rosary psalter category. The ornate sterling silver and onyx cross measures 36 x 58mm or approx. 1 1/2" wide X 2 1/4" high.

Shipped in a velvet pouch.
A FREE Latin prayer booklet is included with each rosary purchase.
