Symbolism in This Rosary
Pink, especially as rose vestments, represents joy during a time of penance and prayer in Catholic tradition. It the color of deep contentment or happiness that cannot be subdued even amidst times of sadness.
Shell, in tradition, has come to represent our baptism---even the dishes used by priests to pour water over the heads of catechumens are often shaped like scallops. It has come be closely associated with Saint James, the Apostle, and his missionary journey to Iberia. Also, from shells we retrieve pearls, the material of the gates of heaven.
Although the fleur-de-lis has long been associated with France, its use in Christian iconography has been for a millennia related to Mary, the Lily among the Thorns, and her connection to the Holy Trinity, in her bearing The Son.
A Three-Way Crucifix includes a pardon crucifix at the center, flanked by a Miraculous Medal and a Saint Benedict Medal.
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!
