Caring for Your Rose Petal Rosary

 

 

~Handcrafted Rose Petal Rosaries~

Hand Rolled One Bead at a Time!

The original 100% Rose Petal keepsake rosaries are carefully handcrafted from your rose petals and are all natural with no artificial additives, preservatives, chemicals, or paint.   The beads are carefully hand rolled from the rose petals and allowed to air dry into a hard and durable bead that will last for generations.  A touch of rose oil is added to enhance the fragrance. The traditional chain Rose Petal Rosaries are capped with elegant filigree bead caps.  The caps add to their beauty and durability.

Important notes about ordering the Rose Petal Rosary:

  • It takes at least one dozen regular to large size roses to complete one Rose Petal Rosary.

  • Miniature roses are not recommended unless included with enough regular to large size roses.

  • Extra roses can be provided at no additional cost if you don't have enough.

  • Please send only DRIED roses. 

  • To dry your rose petals, pull the petals off the stem and spread the petals onto newspaper or paper towels.  This needs to be done to prevent the roses from getting moldy.

  • Dried flower petals may be enclosed in a zip lock bag or other container.

  • Please make sure the rose petals are not moldy or rotted as these cannot be used to make beads.

  • Do not send leaves or stems.

  • The natural process used to craft the Rose Petal Rosary cannot be rushed.  If you need a Rosary quicker than the stated delivery time, the Flower Petal Rosary is a quicker option.

  • There is no color choice when selecting the Rose Petal Rosary.  The color of the roses are not the end color when the roses are dried and formed into beads. The drying process results in the color of the roses to darken naturally.

  • The single decade chaplets are NOT available in the 100% Rose Petal Beads.  Please visit the Flower Petal Rosary page of this website for single decade chaplets.

  • Please allow for variations to occur with each Rosary bead. The natural variations allow each Rosary to be unique and add to its beauty for generations to enjoy and cherish.

  • These beads are water soluble and organic and are not coated with any paint or sealants. Please read the Caring for Your Rose Petal Rosary instructions and the disclaimer below on this page.

~ Caring for Your Rose Petal Rosary ~

Once you receive your Rose Petal Rosary at home, it is recommended that you store it in a dry cool place avoiding humidity and areas with strong odors.  Although a Rosary pouch is included with the Rosary, it is recommended that you store them in a case or keepsake box for extended periods if not in use.  This will preserve them from humidity, odors and will help retain their rose scent. 

Although these beads are durable and will last for generations, remember that they are organic.  These rosaries are made to be used for prayer and meditation and will last for generations with proper care.  Although the rose petal beads are hard and durable, they can be crushed under extreme weight, pressure or if stepped on.

DO NOT store in areas with high humidity or strong odors.

DO NOT immerse the rose beads in liquid of any kind, this will destroy the beads.

DO NOT hang from the rearview mirror of your car or store them in your car, as the direct sunlight will bleach the beads and possibly make them brittle in extreme cold or heat.

   Sterling silver Rosaries will tarnish over time when exposed to air and should be stored in an airtight container or keepsake box.  If the sterling silver does tarnish, use only a silver polishing cloth to rub the tarnish away. 

 DO NOT immerse the beads in liquid of any kind or use cleaners on them.  This will destroy the beads.  

The Rose Petal Rosary is not intended for use by children.
