I have on occasion mentioned the best rosaries I have ever seen. They are made by a acquaintance and collaborator way back in the days when I was still involved with Compuserve!

These are great – for yourself or as gifts for, perhaps, sacramental moments such as confirmation or ordination, even religious profession. I know one fellow who had two rosaries made for a couple getting married, identical except for color of the beads.
