This was the perfect baptism gift for my nephew. It was absolutely beautiful when it arrived and the personalization made it even more special to all of us, as he is a CHD heart baby and his first four months were challenging. Thank you for sharing your gift through these beautiful pieces! :-)

Absolutely beautiful. I've bought a couple of rosaries before from her and her work is amazing.

About

I love to create personalized rosaries with the hope that my work will draw God's children closer to Him through devotion to this ancient prayer.

Welcome to Trendy Traditions, the original Catholic maker of personalized rosaries! It all started in prayer but once I knew I was called to this ministry, my husband and I attended a few classes so we could learn how to bead. Each day is an adventure and I love every minute! Because I've been creating personalized rosaries for five years now, I have hundreds of options for crucifixes, centers, Our Father beads, charms, and saint medals on hand. Please let me know if you're interested in a custom creation.

All of our products are handmade and able to be personalized. Most items will ship within five days but sometimes as quickly as a day or two. Please convo me or specify in the notes at checkout if you need me to put your order at the top of my list!

Additionally, if you purchase one of my specific designs for Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation or Weddings, the rosary will arrive with a keepsake prayer card for your specific occasion. Your handmade, custom rosary arrives completely ready for gift-giving.

After many Catholic celebrations where I was disappointed in the available gift options, I longed for gifts that honored our rich faith tradition but that also celebrated the beauty of modern style. The prospect of helping others fill that need through creating my own products is very exciting! I am filled with joy to not only provide this service to my brothers and sisters in Christ but also to glorify Him through my work.

We recognize that our products are often purchased for a special occasion or sacramental celebration. If your purchase is for such an event, please know we honor family life and thank you for shopping with us for such a blessed occasion.

    After my fourth child was born in 2009, I was aching to spend more time at home with my family instead of working full-time in finance. I cried out in prayer and this little shop is the answer to my desperate plea. God is good.

Shipping
***Please tell me the date you need your rosary in the notes at checkout! Also, I need the name you'd like on it. Unless otherwise specified, each rosary comes with ONE name, up to ten letters.***

I really care about you receiving your rosary in time for your special occasion and I will get your package to the post office in time for their estimated delivery date before your event. However, first class is not guaranteed. Priority mail is more reliable and 2-3 days shipping time. I offer that for you to make the decision about shipping method. Express is guaranteed 1-2 days shipping time.

Domestic Orders
Most items will be shipped within five business days of receiving payment or by the date you mention in the notes to seller if you specify when you need it. For domestic orders, we ship by USPS first class mail. All domestic packages will include delivery confirmation. Shipping rates are $3.95 for your first item and $0.50 for each additional item.

Priority mail (2-3 days shipping time, $6 additional) is available at checkout and selecting it means your item will ship within four days resulting in a total turnaround time within one week. Express mail (1-2 days shipping time, $18 additional) is also available at checkout and choosing this option results in your order shipping within three days resulting in a total turnaround time of 4-5 days at the most. I usually try to get them out even quicker.

Once I take your item to the United States Postal Service, I have the same information available to me that you do as to its whereabouts through the tracking number. Most of the time packages are delivered without incident but first class mail does have the occasional, unexplained delay. I ensure packages are taken to the postal service in time for delivery by your needed date but if timing is really important to you, I suggest you opt for priority or express mail, which are more reliable.

We are not responsible for lost packages. Please keep this in mind when selecting your delivery address.
Refunds and Exchanges
Exchanges
We want you to be happy with your rosary. However, we cannot offer a refund on personalized items. If there is a problem, please contact us immediately and let's see what we can work out. Any arrangement will require the original rosary to be returned.

Limited Warranty
Our products are made of the highest quality components with attention to detail. They are designed for regular use. In the rare event that a product is defective, we will repair your rosary for free within one year after purchase. The return of all rosary parts is required.

A rosary is not a toy. Children should not be left unattended with a rosary due to a choking or strangulation hazard. Please take extreme care with your children while handling a rosary. Our products are strung on professional, high gauge jeweler's wire. In the rare occasion that the wire might break, beads would scatter. (See our warranty above).
