This chaplet is in the traditional form and color of a red one-decade rosary. The stones are 8mm rubylite, capped with lead-free Tibetan silver. The rose center and spacers are also of Tibetan silver. Each bead is close-looped with 20g nickel silver wire for maximum strength and durability. I finished the tail with an Italian medal of St. George. This chaplet will last a lifetime of normal wear and prayer and would make a wonderful gift of faith for someone special in your life, or for yourself! At just 9" in length, this will fit into almost any pocket, or purse. I'll include a St. George prayer card, instructions on how to pray the chaplet and a lovely organza pouch with your purchase.

All that's known for certain is St. George was a soldier and a martyr.
Legend has it that St. George rescued a maiden princess from being sacrificed to a dragon. It's believed that the "dragon" in the story was a symbol for Satan and the "princess" symbolized England.

*Legend of St. George:
The legends surrounding Saint George are varied. One of them concerns the famous dragon, with which he is invariably portrayed. According to legend, a pagan town in Libya was being terrorized by a dragon. The locals kept throwing sheep to it to placate it, and when it still remained unsatisfied, they started sacrificing some of the citizenry. Finally the local princess was to be thrown also to the beast, but Good Saint George came along, slaughtered the dragon and rescued the fair princess. At this the townsfolk converted to Christianity. At the point where the dying beast's blood soaked into the soil, a bush of red roses miraculously sprang up, and St. George has ever since been closely associated with red roses and fire-breathing dragons.
