The St. Gerard Chaplet is simple: three sets of three beads each. On the first set, three Our Father's are prayed; on the second set, three Hail Mary's; and on the third set, three Glory Be's. This particular chaplet has 8mm faceted glass round beads of blue zircon-colored glass. Blue zircon is the birthstone for December, and is also just a beautiful blue green hue. (The final photo, with the St. Gerard holy card, shows a different chaplet.) Green seed beads are used for spacing, and silver-plated barrel-shaped spacers with a heart motif separate the three sets of beads. The crucifix is silver-tone in a traditional style with fleur de lis ends and there is a pewter medal showing St. Gerard on one side and Our Lady of Perpetual Help on the other. The chaplet's total length is a little under 8 inches (20cm). It comes in an organza drawstring bag and a gold foil gift box.

Although the reason is unclear, St. Gerard is a patron saint of motherhood, especially of safe pregnancy and delivery. Three laminated holy cards will be sent with the chaplet: :

- holy card of St. Gerard with prayer for safe pregnancy and delivery
- holy card of St. Gerard with thanksgiving prayer for safe delivery
- holy card of St. Gerard with prayer for becoming a mother

Also sent will be the wording for the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be (on plain paper).

A note on praying to the saints:
Praying to the saints isn't magic, and it doesn't mean we can't pray directly to God. We simply ask the saints to pray for us and with us, as we would ask any Christian friend. Prayer doesn't "change God's mind," but in some way we don't completely understand it makes us partners with God in bringing about God's will, whatever that may be.
