The 4 flowers on the crucifix represent Our Lady's 4 apparitions to St. Juan Diego on the hill of Tepayac outside of Mexico City. The pink coral represents the color of her dress. The aqua glass represents the color of her mantle, with pink roses to symbolize the roses she requested Juan Diego to take to the Bishop, and the unbleached Mother of Pearl represents Juan Diego's cloak of rough hewn fabric upon which Our Lady caused the miraculous image to appear.
A different Our Lady of Guadalupe rosary with larger center and rose crucifix, 7mm Turquoise and red floral glass is shown on #31 Designer Collection 7, and another Our Lady of Guadalupe rosary with Swarovski Crystal and silver foil glass rose beads, is shown on rosary #38, Designer Collection 8
NOTE: There are over 2,000 varieties of Coral around the world. It is formed by the Calcium Carbonate secretions of small sea creatures called polyps, some of which are free swimming and some of which are anchored to other material in the Coral Reefs. This Coral from the Pacific Coral Reefs is naturally grayish white. It is dyed pale pink to vivid crimson red, giving it the same appearance as more expensive Italian Coral, which is naturally colored from the Mediterranian Sea. The Italian Corals rarely grow bigger than 3-4mm.

In August of 358, Our Lady appeared to Pope Liberius and also to a wealthy Roman couple telling them that she wanted a church built on Esquiline Hill. She promised to send a sign.
