Gold Rosary Bracelets

The rosary refers to both a style of jewelry and a prayer that is recited in the Catholic religious tradition. While many rosaries are in the style of a necklace, you can also find bracelets. When shopping for one, consider browsing gold rosary bracelets. Gold is the most traditional material, and it is beautiful and durable. There are different karats when it comes to gold. Unlike the carat weight of gemstones, the word karat in relation to gold describes the percentage of gold to other materials in the jewelry item. Examples include 12 karat, 14 karat, 18 karat and 24 karat.

The higher the number, the more gold is in the jewelry item. It is impossible to make a piece of jewelry out of pure gold because it would be too soft and easily damaged. Adding other metals to the gold adds to the hardness and durability. The karat number not only refers to the amount of gold in the jewelry item, but also has a lot to do with the price. For example, when shopping for gold rosary bracelets a 24 karat bracelet will cost you a lot more than a 12 karat bracelet.

When shopping for gold rosary bracelets, avoid anything gold plated or filled to  get the best quality possible. Even though the more popular type of rosary jewelry is the necklace style, bracelets are available from a wide variety of retailers and even online stores. For example, J.C. Penney carries a 14k gold rosary bracelet that is delicate and finely crafted. It is 7.5 inches, features a lobster claw clasp and the traditional drop cross. This is only one example of this style of bracelet, there are countless others. While rosaries are made in generally the same style, there can be some differences.

Through the online mega store Amazon, you can purchase many different gold rosary bracelets including the miraculous medal with pearls style made by DivaDiamonds. This bracelet is crafted from 14k gold, with shimmering white pearls connected by gold links. Along with the drop cross, this bracelet also features the Miraculous Medal, a legendary medallion featuring the Virgin Mary that is said to be inspired by a Marion apparition and supposedly anyone who carries one receives special prayers and protection. The inclusion of this medal on the rosary bracelet gives it that extra something special.

You can also find these kinds of bracelets for sale on Ebay. Some of them are brand new, as some sellers buy wholesale then sell each item individually on this auction giant. Others are pre-owned, which can add up to big savings for you. Pre-owned gold rosary bracelets should be considered especially if you are on a budget because if made from platinum, gold or sterling they should be in pretty good shape, some may be as good as new. The condition of the item should be clearly stated in the auction listing, also if the price seems too good to be true double check to make sure you are not getting imitation gold, gold filling or gold plating.

Gold rosary bracelets are a beautiful and special way to express you faith and keep it close at hand. Whether you are shopping for yourself or someone else, this type of bracelet is a meaningful gift that will be treasured for a lifetime and may even turn into a family heirloom. Before making a final decision regarding the bracelet you want, take some time to browse the vast selection as there are bracelets made from different karats of gold, colors such as yellow, white and even rose, bead styles and more.
