This stately rosary reflects the two purposes of a tower-- strength and defense, and beauty and ornament. Mary is referred to as the Tower of David not only because she offered Jesus defense and protection when she carried him in her womb, but also because of her beauty. Likewise, this rosary will provide both for those who faithfully use it.
The beads of this rosary are natural designer-grade Tiger's Eye, which reflect rich bands of gold and brown as they are held and turned in the light. The Our Father beads are capped with sterling silver plated ribbed bead caps, finished with jet black Swarovski crystals.
The center of this rosary depicts Mary holding Jesus, surrounded by a shared halo. The crucifix matches the same lovely style with a detailed corpus and ribbed design. Both center and crucifix are sterling silver-plated, as well as the wire used to create each link.
References to Mary as the Tower of David can be found in the Song of Songs and in the Litany of Loreto.
"Your neck is the tower of David, built on layers, hung round with a thousand bucklers, and each the shield of a hero."
