Symbolism in This Rosary
Blue is the color most associated with heaven and the most used color in the Tabernacle of the Temple. The Virgin Mary often wears blue in her apparitions, and it is the color of God’s divine grace.
Gold is mentioned 361 times (or is it 417?) in the Bible and in 42 of its books. It was the currency of the wealthy, and was prominent in the Tabernacle and in the Temple of Solomon.
Lapis Lazuli is very likely the “sapphire” mentioned in the Bible, as concurrent sources describe it with streaks of gold (pyrite). Actual sapphires, sourced in India at first, were not known to the area until the Roman Empire. It would therefore be both one of the stones of the breastplate of Aaron and one of the foundation stones of Revelation’s New Jerusalem. It is used throughout the Old Testament as a sign of both immense beauty and riches.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus represents Christ’s unconditional love for all humanity, as well as his suffering for us. It at times is depicted with a cross over it or the fire of his burning love.
Our goal is to provide you a rosary, not just sell you a rosary. We use only stainless steel eyepins, linkages, and jump rings for both their strength and durability. If there is any defect in the workmanship of a rosary you purchase from us, please let us know, and we will make it right, free of charge, including shipping, within the first year of purchase. Also, for as long as we make rosaries (a lifetime, we hope!), if a rosary we made for you ever has a broken linkage, eyepin, or jump ring, we will be happy to repair it, with cost limited to shipping. Whatever we can do to keep you praying!
