Bead mother pearl rosary
Throughout the centuries,
rosary beads have been made from a variety of materials including precious stones,
crystals, wood and clay. I sell many rosaries whose beads are made out of mother
of pearl, the substance that lines the shells of pearl-producing mollusks. Mother
of pearl is so beautiful that some cultures have tossed away the pearl in favor
of making jewelry and artifacts out of the shell itself. Rosary beads made with
mother of pearl are something to treasure. The iridescent glow of the beads coupled
with the shine of silver make a stunning combination. Mother of pearl rosary beads
reflect a long tradition of the use of this beautiful resource to enhance furniture
and other objects, as well as the use of mother of pearl by itself in jewelry.
Rosary beads made out of mother of pearl will last through generations, a personal
gift to be handed down. The mother of pearl rosary beads come with a variety of
crosses, from very simple to ornate, so any lover of this gem will find a pair
of rosary beads to their liking.
