Loreto Rosaries: Call me a satisifed customer!

A few weeks ago, I mentioned Loreto Rosaries in a post.  The rosaries and rosary bracelets on Ruth's site were beautiful, and I was ESPECIALLY fond of the Red Creek Jasper rosary bracelet.

I couldn't take it anymore.

I had to order the Red Creek Jasper rosary bracelet.  I had been given two rosary bracelets on the night of my baptism and confirmation back in 2005.  My sister-in-law gave me one, and my husband (then fiance!) gave me the other.  I loved wearing them, but I haven't worn much jewelry after having kids.  Ruth makes her rosaries and rosary bracelets a different way--and they withstand a LOT more grabbing by small hands than the rosaries made with chain--and I've been too scared to break something so special given to me on such a special night!

I ordered the rosary bracelet, and I was SO excited when it came.

I must say the first thing that impressed me was the packaging.  A tiny brown box with "Uniquely Made, Limited Edition" was stamped on the top of the lid. 

Inside was a small pouch containing the BEAUTIFUL Red Creek Jasper rosary bracelet.

I was a little nervous that it wouldn't fit (Ruth explained that I should measure my wrist and then add an inch--that's how you know what size to buy!), but it fits perfectly!

I just happened to be wearing an outfit with shades of brown the day it arrived, and the rosary bracelet matched perfectly with the outfit.

Today I wore gray and black, and the rosary bracelet STILL managed to match the outfit--I love versatile jewelry!

Besides the look of the rosary bracelet, do you want to know what my favorite part about it is?

The fact that I actually want to pray rosary decades because the bracelet is so pretty.  I had once heard that a good way to start praying the rosary is to find a rosary that you REALLY like because you will be more likely to want to pray with it. 

I photographed a wedding this weekend, and it was a wedding with a Solemn High Mass.  During the Mass, I refrained from taking photos.  Instead, I prayed a few decades of the rosary for the bride and groom using the beads on the bracelet.  I can't wait to get it blessed!

My only issue now is how my 2 year-old and 10 month-old constanly want to mess with it--my 2 year-old said, "It's so pretty, Mom.  I just want to LOOK at it!"  when I tried to move my wrist out of the way.

Ruth has a wonderful eye for color, and the rosary bracelet was affordable AND beautifully made--I will definitely be returning to Loreto Rosaries in the future.  My only problem:  Rainbow Jasper or African Jade....tough call!

Thank you so much, Ruth!  May God bless you!
