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.
