Genuine bronze, not just a bronze "finish". It has an old world look to it. Notice that it's wire wrapped to make it unbreakable. I prayed a rosary for you (whoever you are who winds up owning this one) and I just loved that big huge Sacred Heart.
I, Pam Aqui, am a wife (of one) and mother (of two) and grandmother (of six). I began to make rosaries over 20 years ago after my husband and I decided to pray the rosary everyday. I am a convert and didn't pray my first rosary until I was 39 years old.
