c. 1940s Mother of Pearl Rosary


This beautiful rosary comes with it's matching zippered pouch and is one of my favorites. The cross is a bronze color with mother of pearl on the front and the back has tiny little tacks holding it on. Jesus is more detailed than many rosaries with the INRI scroll above also detailed as it is readable. The chain is bronze colored with ivory glass beads. Although the beads are glass, they were originally coated with something to give them the ivory color as some of the beads are worn and are more transparent. Personally, I think the fact that someone has worn those beads out makes the rosary more beautiful and special.

The transition charm of Mary is also bronze with stars on the back side.

It is 13" down to the transition charm and the cross hangs down 6" from the charm. There are 54 beads on the necklace and 5 beads above the cross.

The pouch is 3.25 x 2.5" and is plastic with a fabric and metal zipper. It has an etched design printed in gold on white. The zipper works fine.


Payment must be recieved prior to shipping. I fulfill your order within 24 hours after receiving your order M-F. If for some reason, I am unable to ship with in 2 business days, I will let you know so you can decide if it can wait, however, I strive never to do that. I do not usually work the weekend so if you order something Friday nite, it will most likely not ship until Monday.

Shipping from United States

I use standard shipping costs for different size items. In reality it may be more to ship or may be a little less. What you see is what you get & I believe my prices reflect that and are worth it. Whatever shipping cost is on the item is what you pay. With the cost of different boxes etc. it just makes sense to use a flat fee for certain items. I don't add the cost of mailing products to the item, I depend on my shipping costs to include that. I have had instances when my international shipping has been way off, and if that is the case, I do refund that part of the shipping cost. I insure EVERYTHING.

I am a fair and reasonable person. If something is damaged, I will refund your money or allow you to exchange. I will send you a prepaid return for the damaged item if this is the case.
