Antique Faux Bloodstone Rosary, Solid Silver Cross, Link Medal and Chain, Superb Quality, Early 19th Century

Given the rarity of genuine antique bloodstone, it is no surprise that artisans have attempted to replicate in glass the meditative beauty of this precious gemstone. This beautiful rosary is an outstanding example of fine French glassmaking.

Dating from the early part of the 19th century this stunning rosary is solid silver and, unusually for a rosary, has the boar's head mark for 925 silver on both the cross and the link medal.

All the silver is gold washed, although some of that has faded over the many decades of devotion.

Each bead is individually mounted which is a sure sign of high quality and so this would have been a very expensive rosary when it was first made.

This stunning rosary measures 46 cm in length. The cross is 3.5 x 2.2 not including the bale, and the link medal with the head of Our Blessed Mother The Virgin Mary is 1.2 x 1.2 cm.
