I really love using this station for girls' rosaries. It's substantial and sturdy and I love that it's sterling silver. It has a dotted pattern on the back with the small .925 sterling stamp. The hole sizes are perfect for heavier .024in wire. I've had zero issues with tarnish.
I have 9 year old twins and I made 2 rosaries for their First Communion. They chose the color of the pearls and they really love the rosaries.
I've been using this rosary center for about five years now, in probably 60 rosaries, and it will continue to be my go-to choice for girls' and women's rosaries. It's beautifully detailed, it seems slow to tarnish, the loops are sturdy and the entire finding is extremely solid. It's a great choice at a fairly reasonable price.
I'm always looking for good, well-made, attractive and unique Crucifixes and Centers for my custom Rosaries, and this center was quite appealing.
Pros: Good relief. Pretty detail. Sized well with the Ornate Sterling Silver Crucifix. Good feel in the hand. Smooth finish. Nice antiquing.
Cons: Disappointing that it was not mentioned in the description that the back is blank. The image is from the Miraculous Medal, but the Miraculous back is missing! Also, the inside of the loop is a little rough, and the loop is a little thin.
