Sale price$38.00



Each of our stretch and wrap rosary bracelets is a full rosary.  Small rosary bracelets do not include the first three aves. Each bracelet also includes a “bookmark” crucifix medal.  This medal is moveable and can help you keep track of where you are at in your rosary as you pray throughout your day.

Each bracelet is strung on durable elastic making it easy to stretch and wrap around your wrist without fear of snapping it. 

This bracelet has a soft amazonite natural bead for the aves and moonstone for the paters. Each pater bead is surrounded by wavvy silver spacers.  You can learn more about St. Perpetua (and Saint Felicity) in our blog post here.

Due to the wavy spacers sizing is as follows

 Small: 6.75-7” // Medium: 7.25-7.5” 

 Please note that exposing to moisture, use of lotions or fragrances does speed up the oxidation process of the metal components.  


St. Felicity and Perpetua were Christian martyrs who lived during the early persecution of the Church in Africa by Emperor Severus. Unlike most early Christian martyrs we have great detail of the life of the two women because we have the writings of Perpetua herself, her teacher, and a few other companions that tell their story. It is known as “ The Passion of St. Perpetua, St. Felicitas, and their Companions.” It was so popular in the early centuries that it was read during liturgies. In 203 Perpetua decided to follow her mother and become a Christian. This angered her father who was a pagan and he tried everything to convince her as he knew this would mean her death.  Perpetua was only 22 at the time and was still nursing her son. But she responded by asking her father "See that pot lying there? Can you call it by any other name than what it is?"

Her father answered, "Of course not." Perpetua responded, "Neither can I call myself by any other name than what I am -- a Christian." This angered him further and he attacked her. Perpetua left and it was at this time she was arrested with four other catechumens, including two slaves, Felicity and Revocatus, and Saturninus and Secundulus. Their instructor in the faith, Saturus, chose to share their punishment and was also imprisoned. Just before she was taken to prison she was baptized and Perpetua was said to be known for the gift of the “Lord’s Speech”. While in prison they were kept in the worst quarters. It was constantly dark and so crowded. The heat was oppressive and St. Felicity suffered terribly as she was pregnant. Two deacons that ministered to them were finally able to get them moved to a better area of the prison. There Perpetua’s mother and brother were able to come and bring her baby to visit. When she received permission for her baby to stay with her she recalled, "my prison suddenly became a palace for me."  

Meanwhile, Felicity was also in torment. It was against the law for pregnant women to be executed. To kill a child in the womb was shedding innocent and sacred blood. Felicity was afraid that she would not give birth before the day set for their martyrdom and her companions would go on their journey without her. Her friends also didn't want to leave a "good a comrade" behind.

Two days before the execution, Felicity went into a painful labor. The guards made fun of her, insulting her by saying, "If you think you suffer now, how will you stand it when you face the wild beasts?" Felicity answered them calmly, "Now I'm the one who is suffering, but in the arena, another will be in me suffering for me because I will be suffering for him." She gave birth to a healthy girl who was adopted and raised by one of the Christian women of Carthage. Perpetua and Felicity stood side by side and were killed by sword at Carthage in the Roman province of Africa. Sts. Perpetua and Felicity are the patron saints of mothers, expectant mothers, ranchers and butchers. Their feast day is celebrated on March 7.

So charming

I bought this rosary as a gift for my sister. She loved it! It is even more beautiful in person.

Beautiful Rosary Bracelet

I was initially planning on purchasing the Gianna rosary bracelet, when the Perpetua color came out as a seasonal spring exclusive. I was then in debate between the two for a few weeks. I finally settled on the Perpetua, especially considering it was a spring exclusive and probably won't be offered later. It is beautiful, and to my surprise really has gone with every color scheme I have worn. Took it be blessed shortly after receiving it.

Even prettier in person

This rosary bracelet is gorgeous. It was a gift from my husband and I wear it every day. The measurements are spot on. It’s usually hard for my to find bracelets small enough for me, but the size small fits perfect.
