Ave Maria centerpiece is so beautiful it's felt so smooth front and back. Same for the crucifix perfect for carrying in my pocket!!
I purchased this Rosary for my husband. He loves to fidget when he is thinking and is more tactile. He has commented how much he enjoys the weight of the Rosary and the smoothness of the beads. All aspect of the Rosary is of high quality. His favorite part is how the beads slide down their decade section rather than just holding your hands on the bead you are praying on. The design is masculine and powerful. Our sons have already asked if they can have a new Rosary just like the St. Michael Rosary so it has been an inspiration and wonderful addition to our collection. Also the Rosary had a nice bag that it could be placed in when traveling to pray with friends.
