When you’re shopping for pearl rosary, you will find a variety of different pearls, and you may be wondering which ones are right for you. There are distinct differences between naturally occurring pearls and cultured pearls, as well as differences between freshwater and saltwater varieties. Please also keep in mind that most rosaries found in the stores are made from imitation pearls, these are man-made beads designed to resemble real pearls.
According to Wikipedia, “Cultured freshwater pearls are pearls that are farmed and created using freshwater mussels. These pearls are produced in Japan and the United States on a limited scale, but are now almost exclusively produced in China. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission requires that farmed freshwater pearls be referred to as “freshwater cultured pearls” in commerce. Quality of cultured freshwater pearls is evaluated through a grading system of a series of A values, based on luster, shape, surface, color, color and matching”.
About Virgo Sacrata Rosaries
Virgo Sacrata rosaries are genuinely unique, simply beautiful and practical. We have made our rosaries to last a lifetime, and to be passed down for generations! Our rosaries are different from others because we use the traditional wire-wrapping technique. There are only a small number of rosary makers in the world who use this method. Traditionally wire-wrapped by hand, this procedure requires several hours to produce a 5-decade rosary, and almost 4 meters of sterling silver wire, which makes our rosaries virtually unbreakable.
