I have had many rosaries in my years. However, I have also developed an allergy to most metals, I smell the metal, and the links loosen. Distractions in prayer are frequent and these little problems just add to that. So, I ordered this one made with paracord and onyx. No more itching. No more metallic odors. And if a little one gets a hold on this, it doesn’t seem likely to come apart. It’s beautiful to behold and to hold. Perhaps it will become a treasured heirloom! Plus, my youngest daughter noticed and asked me to order her a pink one. So I did! Now we can pray together with new rosaries.
So nice! Excellent weight and very nicely made. My non- Catholic friends really looked it over. And all the mysteries are right there! I definitely recommend this rosary.
We purchased this rosary for my godsons upcoming first communion and it is so beautiful. Very well made, masculine but still showcases the beauty of our blessed mother.
One thing I really expect from a rosary is a nice weight in my hand. I know it’s not important but that’s what I like. This rosary is a good weight and the string is very substantial. The most beautiful and unique part of this rosary is the Miraculous Medal that expands to 3 disks that name mysteries; not necessary but lovely. The beads feel like stone and have a smooth, matte finish. The crucifix doesn’t seem to go with the rest of it. It’s frilly and a little light weight compared to the rest of the set. I still give it 5 stars. I don’t usually spend this much on a rosary but this one is special.
