Star of the Sea – rosary, bracelet


Stunning blue rosary made from larimar quartz, a natural stone that brings you right to the ocean makes it the perfect rosary dedicated to Our Lady, Star of the Sea. A great gift for all nautical Catholics and anyone who lives by the water. The genuine stone beads add a weight and gravitas to the rosary that makes it totally unique from most other rosaries.

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.


These incredible Larimar quartz beads look exactly like the turbulent sea with foam capped waves. Because of the nature of the stone, the almost translucent blue creates an unimaginable depth when it encounters the opaque white parts, making the beads look like they descend to the depths of the sea.

Paired with star-like large white jade beads that glisten with transparency, this rosary is perfect for the title of Mary, Star of the Sea. This devotion to Mary has been around since the beginning of the medieval times, calling upon Mary as our guiding star to Jesus.

St. Bernard referenced Mary under this title saying. “If the winds of temptation arise; If you are driven upon the rocks of tribulation look to the star, call on Mary; If you are tossed upon the waves of pride, of ambition, of envy, of rivalry, look to the star, call on Mary. Should anger, or avarice, or fleshly desire violently assail the frail vessel of your soul, look at the star, call upon Mary.”

Do we go look to Mary as our guiding star? Do we ask her to show us how to live like Jesus? Or do we try to do it all ourselves? When everything around us seems to be falling apart and we feel like we are drowning in the sea of temptation, do we give up and do what is easy, or do we look to Mary standing at the foot of the Cross and trust that nothing is impossible with God?

The crucifix on this rosary was a lucky find, but perfect for Our Lady Star of the Sea, the tips flaring out like sea shells.

To finish off the rosary, the center piece is a silver oxidized Our Lady of Grace Mary, also known as the image of Mary on the Miraculous Medal. It’s a simple center piece that creates that final touch to bring it all together. The folds of her mantle mirror the flared tips of the crucifix and the silver pairs with the accents on the Our Fathers and makes them shine out.


At 15 inches long, with 8mm beads, this rosary is slightly shorter than your standard rosary. 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.

With a little bit of practice, you can easily undo/redo the clasp on this rosary bracelet so you can pray it anywhere. The short strand of beads makes it perfect for holding it in the palm of your hand and keeps it from getting caught on anything.

On the bracelet you have the Benedictine Crucifix (protection against demons and temptation in general) and the Miraculous Medal (Mary asked that all wear it).

Stylish, practical, and comfortable, this rosary bracelet has been my go-to rosary for months.

Bracelet measurements – I found the best way to measure my wrist size is to use my phone charger cable because it simulates the thickness of the beads when on the wrist. Wrap the cord around your wrist and make it a comfortable size. Mark (pencil/pen/sharpie) the cord, then measure it flat.

Choose the bracelet size closest to your measurement, rounding down as the beading wire will relax and get larger with constant wear, especially with showering.

7″ – The size in the photos on my wrist. Fits snugly directly against the skin.

7.5″ – what I’m finding to be the average wrist size.

8″ – larger wrist size.

Feel free to ask for a specific size if these don’t work! Extra beads are added between the crucifix and clasp and are adjusted to order.

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