She requested a custom made rosary with each decade representing one of her five children. These images are of the finished product. The birthstones include the birth month of her husband and herself and the wedding anniversary month. All of the beads representing Aves, are made of 8 mm Swarovski Crystal bicones with an aurora borealis coating (AB), and are in the following order from the crucifix:
Ruby AB (July) her husband's birthstone;
Rose AB (October) their wedding anniversary month;
Topaz AB her birthstone;
First decade - Sapphire AB her oldest child's birthstone;
Each remaining decade utilizes the birthstones for the other children in chronological order, and are as follows:
Blue Zircon AB;
|Alexandrite violet (normal light)|
|Alexandrite - Blue (Fluorescent Light)|
The Paters are made with two beads - a Clear AB crystal ring (to represent the unity and endless quality of married love) with a rose colored ceramic flower inside the ring - rose is their wedding birthstone color.
The center is a hand cast bronze piece with two turtle doves holding a heart. The crucifix is a hand cast bronze piece with hearts on each tip.
Thank you for your order, Brenda!
