Welcome to the home of the Jeweled Rose, dedicated to the study and appreciation of vintage and antique prayer beads.

"There are pleasures in the act of accumulation: the thrill of the hunt, the joy of the find. But true collecting is more. It's listening for the hum of history in things, finding connections among art and objects of different times and cultures, and gathering images so that, as in poetry, they reveal new meaning."

Catholic rosaries and chaplets from the early 1800s through the mid 1900s are my focus, but this is a non-denominational site. My collections include traditional Islamic prayer beads, secular worry beads, Malas, Thelemic and Wiccan rosaries, and more.
