This is smaller version of the St. Francis Rosary. It's modified for smaller beads so it's great for pocket or purse. It's made with Koa wood and all Argentium Sterling Silver so it polishes up with just soap and water. I used full sized Center and Crucifix so that's why it costs more than the other small koa rosary. It's perfect for a First Holy Communion or even for a baptism because it will "grow" with him or her. (Koa wood is the most prized wood indigenous to Hawaii).
