Much of my heritage is Celtic so I was hesitant in ordering a Rosary honoring Saint Patrick that wasn’t from Ireland then I came across this selection honoring The Blessed Mother as “Our Lady of Knock”. I ordered it and what an enchantingly lovely tribute to Her. The enamel work centerpiece is exquisitely done - beautiful yet gently subdued colors and the bead colors set it off nicely. Likewise the Crucifix is hauntingly beautiful. The Rosary reminds me of the ethereal beauty I discovered in Ireland and is a fitting tribute to my Blessed Mother. Another Ghirelli work of art which I treasure!
