Centerpiece: Jesus calls Peter on the shoreline, inspired by the Gospel passage, "Come and Follow Me" (Mark 10:17 - 30).
Our Father medals/beads: Artistic bas-reliefs of the Twelve Apostles
Finish: Antique silver
Signature: Ghirelli Branding Bar shows authenticity and Made In Italy Quality Assurance.
This rosary is wonderfully crafted with beautiful details for each apostle. The center has Jesus calling St Peter. I think it may be nice if there was an option of black or brown beads for men. The beads seem more for a woman. I think the dark colored beads would make this rosary beautiful for an deacon, brother, priest, or bishop.
Love the crucifix and the centerpiece, as well as the Our Father medals/beads of the twelve Apostles. Although beautiful, I find the fancy beads totally wrong for this rosary honoring the Apostles.
What a well crafted rosary. Certainly appreciate it honoring the 12 apostles.
Congratulations Ghirelli on this original idea. I love the length...it appears longer than usual and I like that feature. Always an extremely satisfied customer!😊
Exceptional quality. Wonderful materials. This piece will truly “live” on for generations.
