Mary Untier of Knots Rosary
This special Rosary represents the devotion of Mary Untier of Knots. It features a unique magenta tiger’s eye bead for the Hail Mary beads and is built in two different versions: Silver or Bronze. The Our Father beads are engraved metal knots, also representing how Mary unties the spiritual knots that we create on earth. The centerpiece, in either bronze or sterling silver, depicts Mary Untier of Knots, leading to a beautiful bronze or sterling, hand cast floral crucifix. We think this Rosary represents the perfect Marian devotion for our times.
There is a long history to the Marian devotion of Mary Untier of Knots. Depicted beautifully in the painting by Johann Melchoir Georg Schmittdner, a German Barouque painter of the 1600's, Mary is suspended between heaven and earth, gleaming with light. A dove, representing the Holy trinity, is seen above Mary's head and Mary's feet are crushing a serpent, representing the victory over Satan. There is a halo of 12 stars around Mary's head. Mary is attending to the untying (often referred to an undoing) of knots that represent the spiritual "knots" that we create on earth, while two angels assist Mary at her task. All of this is depicted in the centerpiece, either bronze or sterling, of this rosary. On the front of the centerpiece, with the image of Mary, is the inscription "Desata Nos" which translates to "untie Us." On the back, is the inscription "Roga por Nos" which translates to "Pray for Us." The cross of the hand cast bronze or sterling crucifix is filled with flowers. Roses and lilies have been symbols of Mary since early times, representing her purity, glory, and sorrow. The choice of magenta tiger's eye for the Hail Mary beads represents the blending of colors often associated with Mary and the image of Mary in the painting by Johann Schmittdner, which shows Mary in a combination of crimson and blue. Magenta is the combination of red and blue, with the natural texture of tiger's eye creating a mesmerizing pattern. Finally, the vintage brass knots, made in the 1940's, represent the "knots" that Mary is helping to untie for us.

Beautifully Hand Crafted Rosaries with Pink Rose Quartz for “Our Father” Beads and White Mother of Pearl Beads for the “Hail Mary” Decades, with a delicate Miraculous Metal surrounded with small flowers and finished with a white enamel Crucifix. Just Beautiful!”
“The Rosary has the most unique beautiful gold and blue agate beads, with a silver centerpiece and crucifix both containing the fleur de lis, the Virgin Mary. Never could I have imagined such a magnificent custom-made order that could correspond to my family’s cost of arms. Excellent workmanship that I will treasure forever.”
“These are the most beautiful turquoise rosaries I have ever seen. Super high luster and high quality. The craftsmanship is superior and outstanding…completely hand-made. The Crucifix and St Michael medal are highly detailed and came with a beautifully decorated accompanying pouch – an added bonus. Simply stunning. Seller is delightful. Don’t hesitate to order.
“The quality was evident before I even opened the box. Inside, the rosary was in a zippered pouch imprinted with a print of the Virgin Mary. Just holding the pouch bolstered my impression of quality. A personal card was included describing the rosary, source of beads, the meaning of the medal, and history of the cross. Then I opened the pouch and was gleefully shocked at the pure beauty of the Rosary. Hand-carved beads connected by ornate cylindrical silver links with a metal crucifix and small silver medal. Needless to say, this rosary definitely exceeded my expectations and the value far exceeds the cost. “
“I recently received a gorgeous hand-crafted rosary and the attention to detail is just amazing! The medal of St. Andrew makes it special because his name is in the DeAndrea name and my grandson’s name is Andrew. I love the rosary and the lovely case you sent it in. It will surely be a treasured family heirloom for generations to come!”
