Religious bracelets tell us a different way to live our Faith. Fancy jewels, precious metals, but most of all symbols that we can always carry with us.
Jewels. Symbols of vanity, born to ornate, embellish, with no other purpose. It’s not always like that.
Rosary rings and religious bracelets tell us a very different story.
We’ll talk here about religious bracelets. But how? It is often hard to connect the idea of faith with a jewel. Probably that’s because when we think of a jewel, the first thing that pops into our mind is an object of vanity, an ornament made to embellish and decorate our body, with no use for the spirit. It is surely true that the Church, especially in the past, used to show off precious treasures, decors of undeniable magnificence, ornaments of gold, silver and precious stones. This is not the place to debate about historical and social reasons behind this ostentation. What we would like to talk about here is how a jewel, whether a necklace, a ring or a bracelet, can have the double role of ornament and devotional object, stimulating and helping during prayers. They are not just jewels, of course, but they are object that are created with the specific goal to inspire the faithful and join them in their moments of daily meditation and prayer, and to give them the feeling they can see and touch something useful to encourage their concentration and faith. The most blatant example is the Rosary crown. Whether it is a necklace, a bracelet or a prayer ring, this is an instrument of devotion that helps the faithful recite the prayers that compose the Rosary with its grains or the bumps in a ring.
There are many types of religious bracelets. Holyart has seven in its catalog, and offers bracelets that are suitable for different occasions and uses, from the devotional object to the gift idea for a very special occasion.

Let’s get into details
Rosary spring bracelets
The spring bracelet is a cheap rosary bracelet. It is simple, made of elastic threads along which small glass, or plastic, beads are inserted. There are also more expensive versions, where precious stones or materials replace glass beads. The spring bracelet can be worn on any occasion. It is surely appropriate for young girls, but it looks good on anyone. Holyart offers a wide variety or spring rosary bracelets made with cut glass beads and finished with aurora borealis, a type of finishing made of transparent resin and luminescent pigments that catch sunlight during the day and reflect it later, creating a visual effect that resembles the aurora borealis indeed. In the catalog, you can find spring rosary bracelets of various colors, all adorned with a small pendant cross and a medal depicting the Miraculous Virgin, Our Lady of Medjugorje or other sacred images, depending on the chosen model. Many of the spring rosary bracelets by Holyart are unique pieces, all handmade; some are classic and vintage, such as the model made of fake pearl beads, a small pendant cross and a medal of the Miraculous Virgin. Some others are very modern and fancy, such as the one made of small anthracite gray cubes and dark gray beads, with a medal of Our Lady of Medjugorje.
AMEN jewels tell us about faith through simple and elegant lines. They are a refined collection of rosaries, rings and bracelets with embossed words of faith, such as our beloved prayers Our Father, Hail Mary or Angel of God. All jewels are made in Italy with selected precious metals and nontoxic materials. These jewels can be worn every day, and are suitable for any occasion: a way to carry a tangible sign of our devotion with elegance. In particular, the collection of AMEN religious bracelets offers a wide variety of shapes and materials. For example, golden, silver or bronze bracelets, with engraved famous prayers or suggestive passages from the Bible, such as the wonderful OUR FATHER bracelet, made of pink bronze with the Latin words of the Our Father embossed. Or the Slave AMEN Bracelet, in silver 925 with pink finishing and an embossed passage from the Song of Songs. The bracelet shows the sentence: “Put me as a sign on your heart, as a sign on your arm; Love is strong as Death“. There are also lighter and simpler models, such as the pretty bracelets of beads and medals shaped as little angels or as Madonna. You can find original AMEN religious bracelets, such as the Shamballa AMEN bracelet of Saint Rita with Purple finishing, made of cord and steel medals, or the beautiful Our Father AMEN bracelets, available in many colors, all made of vegetal tanning leather with Italian Our Father words engraved on. It has a magnetic closure in hypoallergenic Steel 316L, is nickel free, cadmium and lead free, with the possibility to have electrolytic nickel free rhodium/golden plates . Fun and informal, the AMEN bracelets in rubber come in various colors, with magnetic closure in hypoallergenic steel 316L.
Even the Holyart decade Bracelets offer a wide variety of shapes, materials and colors. Like the rosary bracelets, they can help recite prayers with their grains, their small knots in the cord, and all those elements that recall each of the passages. We remind you that the whole Rosary is made of 20 decades, or ‘Mysteries’, divided into four different parts, each of them composed of 5 decades. In order to recite a whole Rosary, you need to recite all 20 Mysteries in a row or divided throughout the day, that is, all 20 decades. Each decade is made of 1 Our Father, 10 Hail Mary and 1 Glory.
The decade Bracelets are most of all beautiful to look at and to wear, they are colorful and modern, and are therefore appropriate for children and young people, simple and suitable for any occasion. For example, the adjustable Bracelet made of painted cord, with olive wood beads and metal roses, and a medal of Our Lady of Medjugorje is so fresh and pretty that you can wear it every day. Even the 3-rounds Rosary bracelet with 6 mm olive wood grains and elements in turquoise stone, enriched by a modern-looking metal cross is particularly suited for young people who wish to wear their faith but being trendy at the same time.
In the Holyart catalog we can also find many bracelets with silver inserts and elements. Precious jewels enriched with hard stones, brilliants or Swarovski crystals. Many of the Holyart silver religious bracelets are handmade by Italian goldsmith masters, they are particular and elegant, to wear or to give. In this line we can find many religious bracelets for men, such as the one in real black leather with SILVER 925 decorations made with the technique of lost wax precision casting with artisanal hand finishing. Or else, the Bracelet for men in rhodiated Silver 925 with 3 mm spheres, with details and trifoliate cross embellished with white rhinestones, up to a maximum circumference of 21 cm, and it is closed by a snap-hook and adjustable closure . Wood is another material that is suitable for decorations with silver inserts, as in the MATER rosary bracelet, made of wood and silver 925 decades and cross; this is suitable for men, maybe as a gift on a special occasion.
Multi-image wooden bracelets
The multi-image wooden bracelets are different. What are they? They are elastic bracelets made of elastic threads with applications of various images. They are bracelets with religious symbols applied as decorations. Bracelets with wooden images are very colorful and picturesque, such as the elastic multi-image St. Anthony bracelet, made of wooden grains with applications of various images, a small low relief depicting St. Anthony with Baby Jesus, 5 different St. Anthony medals, 14 color images of the saint, a Franciscan tau. The elastic multi-image bracelet includes 20 different color images of Mary on golden medals alternating with wood grains.
Multi-image metal bracelets
Same concept, different materials. Multi-image metal bracelets have the same pattern of wooden bracelets, but the base of the bracelet is made of metal or crystal beads. The most used metal is hematite, as we can see in this elastic bracelet with a double thread of grains in real shiny and glossy hematite on a plaque, where a big image of Mary, four small ones, and rhinestones are mounted. Other materials are perfect for this kind of working as well, as we can see in this bracelet with silver metal mesh and two color images in the center, one of the Virgin Mary and one of the Holy Heart of Jesus, surrounded with small rhinestones.
Holyart offers a wide variety of bracelets, of different types and materials, many of them are made of precious or semi-precious metals and hard stones, such as amethyst, lapis lazuli, agate and tiger eye. Other bracelets are made of leather, decorated with Swarovski crystals, or with the embossed Our Father or Hail Mary all around, steel magnetic closure shaped as a cross. The bracelets made of amethyst or lapis lazuli with 6 mm diameters grains are very elegant and refined, made of cord with non-allergic steel button. They are true rosary bracelets, made of 5 decades with relative pater, exactly like the traditional rosaries, and a satiny and rhodiated Miraculous Medal in silver 925.
