Virgin Mary Cameo Rosary Style Catholic Necklace

May we be assisted,

we beseech Thee, O Lord,

by the worshipful intercession

of Thy glorious Mother,

the ever-Virgin Mary;

that we,

who have been enriched by Her perpetual blessings,

may be delivered from all dangers,

and through Her loving kindness

made to be of one heart and mind:

Who livest and reignest world without end.




The rose is regarded as the "queen of flowers", and often symbolizes Mary, the Queen of Heaven. Also an almost universal symbol of perfect love, its color, perfection of form, and fragrance, as well as its thorns signifies Mary's role in salvation history as the Mother of God the Savior who was crowned with thorns and shed His blood on the Cross for love of mankind. The rose, arising from a thorny bush, also signifies Mary, the Mystical Rose, "our fallen Nature's solitary boast", who alone of the human race was conceived without sin. It also may contain a parallel with the fiery thorn bush from which God spoke to Moses: Mary, immaculately conceived, was the means through which God became Man, The Word made flesh.)

I just love this cameo with an antique style and look to it. It's made of pine resin with an antique finish.

I decorated it with a vintage goldplated rose bracelet that I placed around the cameo.

This necklace is made with vintage chain. I also added a one decade rosary created with natural garnet beads, Our Lady of Miraculous Medal center and beautiful ornate crucifix.

To the center rosary in necklace I created it with vintage pearls and an Immaculate Heart of Mary center and a large natural Tourmaline gemstone bead holding cameo.

I also added a beautiful brass medal of Our Lady of Miraculous Medal.

I added flowers as "Flowers to Our Blessed Mother"
