Waterford Crystal Rosaries

12 Oct

Waterford Crystal takes its name from the city of its origin, Waterford, Ireland. In 1783, George and William Penrose started a flint glass business there that became known throughout the world. In the passing years,the business has changed hands many times.

Authentic Waterford Crystal Rosaries have a paper sticker with the words, “Waterford Crystal, Made in Ireland” and their trademark seahorse symbol attached to the cross.

The crystal crosses found on Waterford Rosaries have the name Waterford etched on the front or reverse. The crystal crosses have Celtic designs copied from the ancient high crosses found in Irish cemeteries.

The center medal of a Waterford Crystal Rosary usually has an image of Mary on the front and the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the reverse.
