Matthew’s First Holy Communion Keepsake Rosary is made with 6mm red miracle beads for the Aves and 10mm 24ct. gold plated beads for the Paters. The letters and numbers are pewter. The chalice centerpiece, St. Benedict crucifix and saint medal are all oxidized silver and made in Italy. All connections are double crimped and reinforced with a wire protector to make this rosary last a lifetime. Congratulations, Matthew Joseph!
