What is a Wire-Wrapped Rosary Referred to as Heirloom Quality?
Compared to traditional linked rosaries, the ancient technique of wire-wrapping secures the beads with wrapped loops. It adds extra space between the beads resulting in a more comfortable rosary. These rosaries are often referred to as heirloom quality because of their added durability resulting from this specialty construction. Cage-wrapping is a variation of the wire wrapping technique that can be used to showcase Pater beads with a wire wrapped across the bead in a gentle swirl.

How Handcrafted Rosaries Compare to Manufactured Rosaries:
Most manufactured rosaries are made by machine with pliable wire in less than a minute. Decades do not often line up and links can bend or even come apart with use. By comparison, handcrafted rosaries are secured by hand, one bead at a time. Beads are attached by creating a wire loop which is linked to subsequent beaded loops. Sturdy wire, chain and links ensure a reliable rosary for many years of prayer.

*Please note that the prices of our sterling rosaries fluctuate with the market cost of components. As a result, a rosary that is in stock at the store may be a different price than one that is not in stock.
