About

Spiritual Treasures with Vintage Inspiration

I am a wife and mother who loves art and creativity. I am partial to
catholic vintage things, especially old sacred art. It is no wonder I can't resist collecting antique medals. I also love the rosary and had a desire to make rosaries as long as I can remember. Making rosaries in a vintage style is a real passion of mine.

I love the history that are a part of the antique reproduction medals. On some of the pieces you can still see evidence of the good souls that fingered these medals smoothing the edges through years of prayer. Some of the medals still have inscriptions of the original owner on the back, with a name, or date.

When I pair gemstones with these medals, the whole piece takes on their vintage character. I want each rosary to start a new living history in the life of my customer. I want these sacramentals to last so I obsess on the details of construction, using the strongest wires in both modern and traditional methods.

My prayer is that these sacramentals will be a treasure to you as they are to me. An inspiration for a lifetime….old parts made new. I feel honored to be able to create lovely rosaries for wonderful people. May a Graceful Rosary creation be a part of your heavenly journey!

Thank you for visiting Graceful Rosaries. I love to make beautiful gemstone rosaries with antique reproduction medals and strong wire construction. The newest innovation in rosary making are beaded rosaries using stainless steel jewelers wire, which has a 24 lbs of tensile strength. The beaded rosary has much flexiblity of design and has a beautiful drape and feel.

I also love to hand wire chain rosaries and jewelry. This method costs a little more because of the extra labor involved. I use solid metal wires in brass, sterling, and stainless steel. For these rosaries I use a thick gauge wire because it is so strong. My chain rosaries have a lifetime guarantee for breakage of wire. They are the toughest of all the rosaries I make and they are heirloom pieces. I recommend the chained rosaries for pocket rosaries and those folks that are very hard on their rosaries.

There are a few corded beads, such as the Sacrifice beads. These pieces are made to be lightweight functional pocket pieces. And corded rosaries are known to be as lasting as wire.

All my rosaries are made with quality products. But please treat them with respect. No matter how well made a rosary may be, it is always possible to break a bead, especially when dropped.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my shop. I love to hear from my customers!

Accepted payment methods

My preferred method of payment is Paypal because it is fast, efficient and secure for both you and me.
Shipping
****************SHIPPING, INSURANCE***************
For smaller orders listed with $3.50 shipping, they will ship First Class Mail with delivery confirmation. If the Shipping price is $5.50 or above then I am shipping it by Priority mail. Most in stock items are shipped within 2-4 days after purchase. Please allow extra time for custom bracelet sizes and other made to order piece. If you are in a rush let me know and I will see what I can do to expedite your order.

Please note that insurance is NOT included without special request. I strongly urge my customers to request insurance for their package prior to purchase. I am a small business and cannot be responsible for failures on the part of the postal system.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS

I will ship pretty much anywhere that receives mail. I use first class international mail. It is estimated to take 7-10 days from the mailing date to arrive, and usually does, however once it is out of the hands of the U.S. postal service I have no control or way to track a package. They are very rarely lost but do sometimes get held up in customs. That being said please allow 2 weeks from the mailing date before you start to worry.
I also do not cover customs charges, or fill out customs forms dishonestly. You are responsible for all customs fees associated with merchandise of the value of the item you purchase according to the customs rules of your given country.

If you are not happy with your purchase, please contact me within 7 days of receiving your order, with your refund request. You will be expected to return the item immediately after contacting me. PLEASE CONTACT ME thru this shop, not my e-mail!
I will give full a full refund, once I receive the item and see that it is in it's original condition. (shipping charges are non-refundable),

********************************************************************************

Once you contact me for my 'ship to' address, you will be asked to use the following instructions for a return. Any missing information will delay your refund.

1) your name and e-mail
2) a note with your request, (exchange, repair, refund, etc.)
3) your original purchase date, (very important so I can find it on Paypal)
4) Please do NOT send it certified or signature required. A tracking number is recommended as I cannot be responsible for lost packages.

* I don't accept returns on Custom Orders, nor on items that you have requested me to adjust or make changes to.
The address on my Etsy shop is not my mailing address, so please request my 'ship to' information!
Additional policies and FAQs
Repair Policy:
Of course, sacramentals and jewelry should be treated with care, but I understand that over time minor repairs may become necessary. As a sign of appreciation to my customers, I offer free basic repair on my pieces, less the cost of shipping and replacement parts for one year after purchase. Please allow 4-6 weeks for free repairs. During November and December your repair may take longer.

Resizing: Bracelet orders usual have custom sizing in the order. If the customer has given me the wrong size and requests a remake of the bracelet, I will need to charge the customer for my labor. If on the other hand I sent you the wrong size, then I will of course resize the bracelet at no charge.
