This rosary features genuine Mother of Pearl beads, which are a real treat! Genuine Mother of Pearl jewelry is made from the shells of mollusks and oysters. It's considered organic jewelry, since it is created from living organisms. Pretty neat stuff.
Anyway, this rosary is a great gift to give Mom, a daughter, or any Catholic woman you care about! She will love praying on this rosary. The crucifix and centerpiece are made from pewter with a rhodium finish to give it the same type of shine as sterling silver, but for a discounted price.
