This rosary has a masculine flare with its wooden beads, silver tone chain and crucifix, and a centerpiece that is a full color depiction of St. John the Evangelist. Measures approximately 24 inches long including the crucifix. This item comes gift boxed.
The Rosary beads are beautiful. Quality craftsmanship. I did think the coloring would have been darker. it would be so nice if information would be included with the rosary.

We ordered this gift for our favorite teacher, as St. John the Evangelist is important to his faith experience. We were so excited to find a rosary that had an image of St. John so beautifully displayed in its workmanship. The beads are real wood, cherry in color, and the bright silver chain work is handsome.
The overall rosary could be a bit more substantial in weight, but it is guaranteed to be repaired or replaced upon damage, so it is of no real concern. It would be nice if a prayer card, or information, about St. John was also included. I would highly recommend this rosary, nonetheless, and am so happy with my purchase. Best Uses: Devotion to St John, First communion, Gift, Gift for man; Cons: Info about saint needed; Pros: Fine workmanship, Great gift for men, Guaranteed if breakage, St John image very clear, Very Nice Packaging
