Measurements of Rugged Rosaries

** This page is due to be updated soon**

The sizes of the rosaries we sell vary depending on the type of beads or build. Most of the rosaries are larger than average, or more weighty or "hefty" due to the ruggedness. Also, most rosaries can be worn but if they are too small we will state so in the product description.

Also, these are all hand made, but we do try to be extremely consistent in the size and spacing.

5 Decades, Knots between decades for the Our Fathers - 17.5 to 19.5 in. long.
