This genuine sapphire rosary uses mixed metals to achieve its golden look. The wire, rings, caps and chain are all 14k/20 gold filled (not electroplated), which is a lux, high grade material to work with, and very easy care for a customer. The crucifix and center are cast yellow bronze (a true bronze, not brass) with no antiquing, and have been tumble-polished to a pretty shine. These photos were taken in the bright sun, so it's a little difficult to see the difference between the gold filled findings and the bronze parts, but the best pic for that is the close up of the reverse of the rosary center, where there's a little bunch of the gold filled chain near the center. Tiny faceted iolite accent beads were added to the Our Fathers for a bit of sparkle. A rich look at a nice price!
