In the unlikely event that this rosary should break, simply gather all the beads you can find and email me. You only pay for shipping and the replacement of missing parts; major beads and the medals.


Mary is the Gate of Heaven because it was through her that Jesus passed from Heaven to earth.

It was her “fiat”, her yes to the Angel Gabriel, that allowed the Holy Spirit to overshadow her, starting the greatest story in the history of the world – the redemption of man.

Her yes is the turning point in all of human history; before it we were stuck in the Old Covenant – loving and serving God without being able to obtain forgiveness for our sins or everlasting life in heaven.

The gate to heaven was locked. It would take Jesus’ death and resurrection to open it back up again. And he couldn’t do that until Mary agreed.

Will you say yes to God’s plan when he comes asking? Go to Mary. Ask her how she had the strength. Remember how she never lost trust that God is a good father. And remember how great of a Redeemer we won because of one yes. Mary will help you every step of the way.

The midnight blue lapis lazuli beads are flecked with the tiniest bits of gold – part of the beauty of lapis – making each bead look like the night sky. The Our Father beads are gorgeous white howlite that is streaked through with grey veins that look like cracks – symbolizing Jesus breaking into our world and establishing the New Covenant of the Eucharist as the fulfillment of the Old Covenant of the Passover.

Paired with this already stunning rosary are the two most gorgeous rosary parts I have ever seen together – the vintage style cameo Mary centerpiece and the highly detailed crucifix. The blue of the centerpiece perfectly accents the blue lapis and the light grey-blue spacer beads around the Our Fathers and the white of it matches the Our Father beads.

Do note that these rosary parts are much larger than normal. They work so well together because they are a similar size, but if you’re planning on keeping this rosary on your person, it might be a bit awkward. Also, I did not assemble the centerpiece, but it is distinctly two parts that have been glued together with a very strong adhesive.


At 17 inches long, with 8mm beads, this rosary is roughly the same size as your standard rosary except the centerpiece and crucifix are larger. The rosary is assembled with 49-strand steel beading wire, crimping beads, and wire protectors, so it is super strong.

Because this rosary is made with stone beads, it has a weight to it and retains ambient cooler room temperate, which is really awesome to feel when you’re praying; it always made me focus more on what I was saying. And then as you pray the stones warm up from your body heat.

Please remember that all things can break with excessive use. Under normal, conscientious use, this rosary will last a very long time, but, for instance, if you keep this rosary in a tight pocket every day, all day and get it crushed under you or against something, the small glass spacers can break and the steel wire will be under strain and can stretch and even break.

These repairs can be made, and I would be delighted to do so, but as time goes on, I might not have extra beads or I might be gone. So do be gentle and take good care of your rosary.


Features of the rosary:

Center piece: 1-1/4″x7/8″ vintage style cameo Our Lady of the Streets silver oxidized center piece

Crucifix: 2-1/4″x1-1/2″ detailed silver oxidized crucifix

Hail Mary beads: 8mm lapis lazuli stone beads

Our Father beads: 8mm white howlite stone beads

Spacers: 4mm light grey-blue mother of pearl spacer beads with silver oxidized flower bead caps and silver czech glass seed beads



Lobster clasp and chain make the new bracelets far more adjustable than the old designs. Two sizes are available: Small and Medium/Large. The only difference is the length of the chain. Small goes from 7″ to 7.5″, Med/Large goes from 7″ to about 8.5″.

If the size is too big, you can easily use two pliers and remove any excess chain and make it exactly customized to your wrist.

    I received this Gate of Heaven rosary yesterday. It’s absolutely beautiful and tremendously well-made. I will be shopping with Monica again!

    Once I opened and held my Gate of Heaven 5 decade rosary and saw how beautiful it was and fell in love. I knew right away I wanted the 7″ bracelet as well. These pieces are gorgeous and the lapis lazuli stones are just lovely. As a catechumen in RCIA I love being able to pray on a rosary that was obviously well made with love.

    My bracelet goes everywhere with me.

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
