"The Rosary is the weapon for these times" Saint Padre Pio
The Corona Ex Machina is our interpretation of a traditional decade finger Rosary. Just like the Crusader series, we wanted to create a robust finger Rosary that was not only unique and beautiful but also functional and we believe our "Corona EM" finger Rosary exceeded those requirements. It shares similar characteristics of a traditional Rosary not normally found on a typical finger Rosary.
For example, the interior of the ring has tactile nodules that represent the traditional drop of a five decade Rosary’s opening prayers; an Our Father and three Hail Marys.
The larger nodule at the top of the inside ring represents the "Our Father" (Pater bead).
The 3 nodules at the bottom of the inside ring represent the first 3 Hail Marys (Ave beads).
Completing a full prayer circle on the inside of the ring is the same bead count as the beginning of a traditional 5 decade Rosary.
The outside beads and cross are designed to function like a typical finger rosary. However, there is one additional feature with our beads... Every other bead has a flower-cross motif to give visual feedback while praying the decade.
These beautiful Rosaries are cut from solid metal by a precision waterjet cutter. Each raw piece is then inspected and sanded by hand to improve the finish before a light tumble to soften the edges and burnished to create a luxurious polish. Lastly, each Rosary receives a hand stamped crown logo on a single bead. As with most our products, we like to keep the branding to a minimum.
The Corona Ex Machina is a Rosary that can be passed on to future generations encouraging not only prayer but also, our faith.
