The Ave beads in this vintage style rosary are 8mm carnelian beads. These beads are amber in color and have a beautiful translucence. They all have a decorative swirl of brass wire going up the side. Accenting these beads are intricate Bali style antiqued brass beads. These beads are 14mm by 15mm and give the rosary an old fashioned look.
The center is a Miraculous Medal that has been placed in a garden setting. The ornate crucifix compliments the center and the rest of the rosary. They are both solid brass. The wire is solid brass and will develop a nice antiqued patina over time.

The Ave beads in this rosary are 6mm by 7mm dark red faceted crystals. The Pater beads are 10mm by 14mm handmade wedding cake beads. These beads have a white background with stylized flowers, gold adventurine and silver.
The center honors St Therese also known as the Little Flower. Her legacy to us is that even the smallest and simplest of actions are pleasing to the Lord. They become like little flowers in a bouquet that we can offer to Him. Red roses are the flowers that are most commonly associated with St Therese. The center is a relic containing earth from St Therese's coffin. The ornate Fleur de Lis crucifix compliments the entire rosary. Both the center and crucifix are silver colored metal.
