Red faceted glass in an elongated oval shape makes the Ave beads for this five-decade Catholic rosary. The Pater beads are red glass hearts, about 16x16mm. Each side of the hearts has a raised flower design as well as trim around the edge of the heart, both in gold. The effect is of an old-fashioned, or old-world, decorative heart. Gold-plated accent beads and red seed beads fill out the rosary. The fifth photo shows sunlight shining through the glass beads.
The center and cross are both gold tone. The center is a scapular medal with a cut-out image of the Sacred Heart on one side and Our Lady of Mount Carmel on the reverse. The crucifix is in a simple traditional style with flared ends; the reverse side is plain.
The measurement from the bottom of the crucifix to the middle of the rosary is 21 inches (54cm). It's a nice, long rosary without being too long. The elongated beads add to the effect.
The rosary comes in a drawstring organza bag and a gold foil gift box.
