How do I take care of my rosary?

We hope that your rosary will be a treasured tool of devotion for many years to come. 

Because of the materials used in the making of our rosaries, we do not recommend using jewelry cleaner or strong solvent cleaners, such as bleach, clorox, or other household cleaners.

To clean your rosary, simply mix warm water with a little mild dishwashing liquid. Gently wash the beads with this mixture. Rinse with warm (not hot) water. Pat the rosary dry with a microfiber cloth. 

If you have a wood bead rosary, do not use soap and water. Wood beads should not be dipped in water.

Has my rosary been blessed?

While our items are made with love and care, none of them are blessed prior to being sent out. We recommend that you take your rosary to a local priest to have it blessed. 

My rosary looks different than the one in the picture. Is something wrong with it?

Most of the stones and other materials we use are natural, so there is some variation in color, pattern, or shape. Because each item is handmade, two rosaries of the same design may not be identical. If you feel that you may have received the wrong rosary, please contact us at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to help make sure that you receive the correct item.
