Saint Joseph Rosary
Perfect for Father’s Day, this special Rosary is also a devotional to Saint Joseph who, because of his humility and virtue, was chosen by God to be our Lord’s earthly father. The Hail Mary beads are volcanic brown lava stone, set off by silver or gold tone Czech glass spacers and the Our Father beads are made of olivewood, imported from Bethlehem. The centerpiece is a bronze or sterling silver tribute to St. Joseph, with the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary on the back. The Rosary beads lead to a beautifully hand cast solid bronze or sterling silver Holy Family crucifix.
A father is a source of strength and support, protector of his family, and constantly striving to provide for and raise his children to know right from wrong. A father puts the needs of his family before his own and teaches his children the value of hard work, courage, honesty, and good judgment. The inspiring example for all fathers, and also the inspiration for this special Rosary, is Saint Joseph, patron saint of fathers, workers and the Universal Church, because of his obedience, humility, selflessness, courage and the love he showed to Mary and Jesus. Whether he realizes it or not, it is through such dedication and commitment to his family, that a dad emulates Saint Joseph. The brown lava rock beads used in this Rosary are literally made from cooled down molten rock (also called Basalt, an igneous rock). In order for rock to melt, it has to reach temperatures as high as 1,000 degrees Celsius beneath a volcano. Lava rock is said to be a "grounding stone," and we think that is perfect for St. Joseph and to pay tribute to all of the fathers in our lives. The olivewood beads used for the Our Fathers, come from olive trees, which have been in existence from the times of Jesus Christ. These trees are considered sacred because Christ lived and preached in the areas where they grow. Once the tree reaches the age of 200 years or so, the trunk disappears and new shoots develop at the base of the trunk, eventually growing into a new tree, which has caused some to refer to it as the “immortal tree.” The beads are made from the trimming of branches only - No trees were killed in the process. The crucifix in this Rosary, either solid bronze or sterling silver, represents the Holy Family and is a model of faithfulness, with the Lamb of God at the foot, representing Jesus, Joseph and Mary on each arm, and the Holy Spirit at the top. The centerpiece, also in bronze or sterling silver, offers a devotion to St. Joseph on one side and the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary on the other. All together, we think this creation celebrates all fathers, through St. Joseph, and our families as well as the the Holy Family through the hand cast crucifix.

“I just received my rosary as a Birthday Gift, and I must say, they are the prettiest Rosaries that I have ever received. 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!”
