The Black Monk Difference:
*The first rosaries produced by St. Dominic and the Dominicans were constructed with strong cords instead of weak metal parts. Black Monk Rosaries holds true to St. Dominic's vision of the rosary.
*The Black Monk Rosary Promise - (Life Time Warranty) If your Black Monk Rosary, Bracelet, Medal, Chain, Chaplet, or Key Chain would ever break or gets damaged just mail it to Black Monk Rosaries and we will replace it with a Brand New Rosary, Bracelet, Medal, Chain, or Key Chain - No Questions Asked.
*Black Monk Rosaries follows the old saying - "You Get What You Pay For". That is why Black Monk Rosaries only uses premium materials to produce the "Strongest Rosaries in the World".
*Painstaking attention to detail along with time honored American craftsmanship.
*Every Rosary & Bracelet is handmade specifically for each customer to ensure quality.
*High-Impact Acrylic Beads which provide hardness and durability vs inexpensive plastic beads used by lesser brands which scratch and lose their color over time.
*Corrosion-Resistant Stainless Steel and Chrome-Plated Brass Beads.
*Deluxe Crucifixes, Custom Centers & Shields are not only detailed but are substantial to the touch.
*Handcrafted wood beads that are designed for efficiency and comfort.
*Black Monk Industrial Grade MIL-C-5040 Type III 550 Paracord produced in the United States exceeds all strength specifications and is both rot and UV resistant. Many low end brands use substandard paracord or other inferior materials which reduces prices but in turn is weak and causes sagging, breakage, and discoloration.
*The Industrial Grade 12mm stainless steel ring holding the crucifix or cross into place is able to withstand over 300 lbs of pulling power. The stainless steel rings are incorporated into the bottom knot to hold the crucifix or shield into place. This is far more difficult to produce but provides greater stability and strength.
*Each Rosary is inspected three times to ensure the best quality.
*Black Monk Rosaries produces traditionally designed rosaries and never cuts corners by leaving out the first two Our Father Beads like so many lesser brands do to save money.
*Strong enough to be worn to testify your belief in Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother.
*Unique Designs found only at Black Monk Rosaries. All designs are copyrighted.

"I received my rosary on the 30th of this month. It is truly beautiful and I feel so blessed to have it. Especially the crucifix. That is a masterpiece of work. This rosary has completely transformed my prayer life and my life in general. Thanks very much, and have a blessed day." Mary Kattukudiyil Scarborough, Ontario Canada
"Just received my Miraculous Medal and I have to say it's one of the most beautiful piece of jewelry I have. The details are impeccable and gorgeous, the size is perfect. I highly recommend Black Monk Rosaries to all my friends and family." Ray Trujillo Thatcher, AZ
"Received my beautiful miraculous medal today 12-18-23. Thank you so much. I love love it so very much can't stop looking at it. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. God bless" 🙏 Annie Trujillo Safford, AZ
"I just got done taking the “Rue du Bac” 2 inch Miraculous Medal from the package. I have to tell you how blown away I was when I saw it. The medal is magnificent!! I didn’t expect such high quality in the image and lettering. The BVM image just jumps out at you. To say that I’m highly pleased would be an understatement. It was worth every penny I paid for it….and then some. I learned that the French don’t stamp their medals “925” or “Sterling” like USA manufacturers do. The French do mark their medals by putting a tiny indented stamp on the top ball area of the medal. The medal I received definitely has that mark, proving it is indeed Sterling Silver." Larry Turek Dearborn, MI
"I purchased a crusader rosary and a Memento Moro Rosary, each for a loved one transitioning to the Catholic faith. Each could not believe the quality of their rosaries. Bomb proof and beautiful, they feel as though they’re holding pure quality every time they pray the decades. As for myself, I purchased a bracket and two Saint medals. I was not expecting what came in the mail. Solid, heavy, and beautiful medals and a bracelet wound so tight it’s looks water tight!"
Very Respectfully, Gabriel Cornejo Napa, CA
"I love the saint Joseph medal you sent me. It is perfect and looks well made. It was worth every penny thank you." Daniel Chatterton Lindenhurst, NY
"Just received the rosary today, it's fantastic, the quality is exceptional😇 I will use this every day, even my neighbour next door says it's wonderful, I'll try and encourage him to pray the rosary and he doesn't even go to church. Mary must be working on him? Give the Trust pilot link and I'll give a 5 star rating😊" Stuart Mackersy Kelso, Scotland, United Kingdom
"We received the Rosaries and wish to express our deepest gratitude. They are more beautiful than we expected, and we hope we may come to you for our future Rosary needs. We couldn't be happier.

"I just wanted to let you know that my order arrived literally as I was on my way to Mass this evening!! I was able to give it to the young man who trained my son right after he served his first TLM, as a thank you gift! I have attached a picture of our chapel and both boys. The rosary is exceedingly beautiful, masculine and incredibly well made. The crucifix was particularly stunning!! Xavier is the head server's name, he opened it and everyone was saying how much they loved the brown rosary. I will definitely send more people to your website and I plan on ordering ones for my husband and our son's as well. May God bless your apostolate." Pax Christi, Meredith Burl, Grandville, MI.
"I received my order today. Wow. They look amazing and super sturdy. They are presents for my brothers; one is a retired police officer (as am I), and the other is a retired firefighter. The rosaries look as if they can withstand any battle! Vincent Delgado, Sedona, AZ.
"I'm writing to let you know how astonished and happy I am with my rosary. I have many rosaries but your crusaders rosary with both the crucifix and the shield is unquestionably the most beautiful I have ever owned, and it will be my go-to from now on. It is both hefty and comfortable, just right for my hands. The craftsmanship on display left me speechless, and I keep noticing new details in the design of the rosary, especially with the knights helmet centerpiece. God Bless you all and keep up the good work!" Wes Klingele, Kent, WA.
"I am incredibly impressed by the quality of my rosary (hematite Rue du Bac center rosary.) It is absolutely a work of art of heirloom quality that can be passed on to my children and grandchildren. I have never seen such attention to detail and quality from any other rosary maker. Very impressive, and well-worth the price. To top this off, the guarantee is iron-clad and not available from any other maker - if anything ever goes wrong with your rosary, just send it back to the maker and they will replace it with a BRAND-NEW rosary, not a repaired item, no questions asked. This is something you truly cannot find from any other maker. In dealing with Black Monk, I have found their customer service to be second to none. Something that is also almost impossible to find these days. The priest who blessed this rosary and all who have seen it have remarked on its quality and substantial nature. It is truly a beautiful item and I couldn’t be more pleased. Buy from Black Monk Rosaries - you won’t be disappointed." Mark Koenig, South Windsor, CT.
"I am writing this e-mail to advise on my recent purchase. Simply amazing. I have never seen such craftsmanship put into a product like this. It was just beautiful. I purchased the OLG rosary for my wife who is the President of The Guadalupano Society at our Church. She was blown away. The first time she used it was at the beginning of the Novena at our Parish and afterwards everyone was asking her where she got it. Since she did not know she blew up my phone asking me. I hope this will increase your sales as I believe it will. As a Deacon in the Church I try to help as many people as I can. Hopefully letting them know where I purchased this beautiful and magnificent rosary will not only strengthen their faith but also enjoy the beauty of a well crafted Rosary.Thank you for what your company does. It was well appreciated." Deacon Joseph M Marroquin Sr. - San Antonio TX
"I would just like to reach out to let you and your team know how excited I am about my Memento Mori Rosary. The attention to detail and quality of the materials is exceptional.

Mark Henry - Philadelphia PA

"I received my Mater Dei rosary this week, and it is an awesome rosary. It has a lot of heft to it, and it looks and feels durable, yet beautiful. It’s a great combination to have in a rosary. It feels like a weapon, and the Holy Rosary is definitely one of the most powerful spiritual weapons. The customer service was also great. My rosary was delayed, and they were very helpful. I definitely recommend them for a durable, beautiful, and high-quality rosary. God bless them for their work! Mater Dei, ora pro nobis." Kile Stevens - Rushville IN

"My rosary arrived yesterday and I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with your craftsmanship. You are not just making rosaries, you are forging substantial weapons! I, like other reviewers, was surprised and delighted by the materials used and overall heft of the rosary. It is heirloom quality, a worthy instrument in the hands of all Knights (and Handmaidens) of Our Lady. Thank you again." Albert Hickman - Saint Regis Falls NY
"Compared to competing brands, these rosaries are of higher quality. The paracord knots are bigger. The crucifix is heavier. The ring connecting to the crucifix is thicker than other brands. The beads don't slide up and down; they are firm in place. All of these combine to make me very pleased with my purchase. And I love the lifetime warranty. This place needs to be better known." David Marquand - St. Louis MO
"I recently received my Original Black Monk rosary. This was my first order from Black Monk. It will not be my last, even though from a strictly practical perspective it could be, because this rosary is certain to outlive me, and likely the person I pass it along to. But there are so many attractive products available through the company, at reasonable prices, that I am certain to become a repeat customer.!" Chip Oakley - Geneva AL

I appreciate the fact that these rosaries are handmade and are not being rushed out on an assembly line. I’ve now received the beautiful Carpenter II Rosary.
