This is my handmade Swarovski rose crystal breast cancer rosary featuring St. Agatha. To learn more about why cancer rosaries are such an important ministry to me, check out my blog by clicking HERE. Unlike other cancer rosaries, this one is fully customizable, and includes specially engraved parts customized to help raise money for cancer research. All of my cancer rosaries are ~made to order~, so please allow an extra day or two for completion before shipping. And remember....every full-sized, hand made, Speziale rosary also comes with a special prayer card and a drawstring pouch for easy storage.
BEADS: 6mm light rose Swarovski Crystal Beads
CENTER/CHARM: American made engraved silver plate roses and St. Agatha
CRUCIFIX: American made engraved silver plate open work crucifix
WIRE/CHAIN: Round Link Sterling Silver Chain and 20 Gauge Silver Plate European Wire
LENGTH: 19 inches
Unlike store bought rosaries, I use bows instead of jump rings for added durability.
HOPE: The bright silver plate finish on all of the parts is a symbol for hope! I can’t stress enough how important a hopeful and positive attitude is for someone who is sick. It can mean the difference between life and death.
PRAYER: The crucifix has the words Pray for a Cure on the back as a reminder pray, pray, pray. Pray for a cure. Pray for whatever is best for those involved. Pray for the researchers and drug companies so that they keep on track and disregard that nagging greed.
SUPPORT:The center features two roses which symbolize Our Lady. Mother Mary can be a HUGE member of our support team if we let Her!! She is a reminder of our compassionate and nurturing natures.
REMEMBRANCE:The word Remember is engraved on the back as a reminder: Don't EVER forget the sick or the souls of those who have passed. They still need our prayers!
SAINTS: The charm attached to the center is of St. Agatha who is the patron saint of Breast Cancer.

This is the only part with an oxidized finish on it (it was necessary to show the detail of the medal).
Thanks for looking! God Bless and have a great day! :)
