“Rose” necklace. Gold and diamond

Product Description

Inspired by the Crown of Roses on the statue of Our Lady of Fátima, of the Chapel of the Apparitions, made by Casa Leitão in 1942.
In this gold chain the charm with the rose, also of gold, stands out, a dewdrop shining at the centre, represented by a diamond.

The Crown of Roses

In 1942 Casa Leitão was entrusted with the many hundreds of jewels offered by the Portuguese, in order to make queen’s crown for Our Lady. The generosity of the offers was such that a second crown was made in addition to the Precious Crown. This crown, also a queen’s crown, is made of silver gilt and decorated with chased roses.

The crown is on the statue of the Chapel every day of the year, except for great festive days, when the Precious Crown is placed. The Roses topic, chased in the crown, also bears the memory of Isabel of Aragon, wife of king Dinis, queen of Portugal and later queen Isabel, and of the Miracle of the Roses.

Isabel of Aragon, wife of king Dinis, was queen of Portugal in the late fourteenth century and was canonized as Queen Saint Isabel. They were difficult times in the Kingdom of Portugal and the queen would leave the palace to distribute food to the poor. On the occasion of one such visit, the king asked her what she was taking with her, and she answered: “They are roses, my Lord.” She uncovered her lap and the hidden bread was seen as roses.
