Marian Blue - Aquamarine Austrian Crystal Rosary 

Luminous Legacies:

The Aquamarine Austrian Crystal Rosary is not only a symbol of devotion but also an artistic marvel. Inspired by Marian blue, each Swarovski bead shows respect for the Virgin Mary.  In paintings, Mary is traditionally portrayed in blue. This tradition can trace its origin to the Byzantine Empire, from circa 500 AD, where blue was the color of an empress.

Also, the Blue Aquamarine beads bring calm, making prayer deeper. Together with Matte White Jade beads, they form a peaceful color mix. This blend stands for purity and peace, making the rosary feel more spiritual.

Finally, this rosary is more than just prayer beads. It represents hope and devotion, linking to Marian traditions. So, its design, based on Marian blue, makes prayers feel deeper and more meaningful.

Materials & Care

Gold Filled:

Gold-filled is made by bonding a layer of 14- or 12-karat gold to a brass core, creating a tarnish-resistant surface with only gold visible. The metals are fused using heat and pressure and then shaped to specific sizes. The gold content is 5% by weight, and this type of metal cannot be cast. Gold filled has a much thicker layer of gold over the base metal compare to gold plated.

Sterling Silver:

Sterling silver is composed of 92.5% pure silver, with the remaining portion typically being copper, added to enhance the silver's strength. Recognized as a precious metal, sterling silver is prone to tarnishing, a natural chemical reaction that happens when silver comes into contact with air. Fortunately, this tarnishing can be easily reversed.

Argentium:

While Sterling silver is an alloy with 92.5% silver and 7.5% usually copper. In contrast, Argentium silver has more pure silver (93.5% or 96%) and includes germanium. Argentium is more durable, has a higher melting point, and is easier to work with than sterling silver. Additionally, Argentium is significantly more resistant to tarnishing, being seven times more tarnish-resistant than sterling silver.

Gold Plated:

Gold plated involves electroplating a thin layer of gold over a base metal like brass or copper. There's no set standard for the karat weight or thickness of the gold layer in gold plated items. The color of the gold can vary depending on its karat weight; for example, 14k gold tends to have a lighter yellow hue, while 18k gold usually appears with a darker yellow color.

Care and Maintenance for Your Rosary:
  • Handle your rosary gently to prevent damage to the beads or links.
  • Store it in a safe, dry place when not in use to protect it, such as in a TLB pouch or box.
  • Clean the rosary periodically with a soft, dry cloth to remove dust and dirt.
  • Avoid exposing the rosary to harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, and moisture.
  • It's still a good practice to give your rosary some rest and ensure it's stored safely after use.
