"Mary is the most beautiful flower that ever was seen in the spiritual world. It is by the power of God’s grace that from this barren and desolate earth there have ever sprung up at all flowers of holiness and glory. And Mary is the Queen of them. She is the Queen of spiritual flowers; and therefore she is called the Rose, for the rose is fitly called of all flowers the most beautiful."
- St. John Henry Newman
The rose is referred to as the "queen of flowers", which symbolizes our mother Mary, the Queen of Heaven. The rose is also a universal symbol of perfect love; its thorns signify Mary's role as the Mother of God, whose Son, Jesus Christ, was crowned with thorns.

I bought the rose necklace for my niece and the stella maris necklace for my daughter - they LOVED them!
Nice, dainty necklace I can wear with higher-cut necklines (purchased the 15"). Also has additional meaning, as my grandmother passed away several years ago and her name was Rose.
