I received the two rosaries that I ordered and I really do like them. They are unusual, and I spent a lot of time on the Etsy website finding something like them. The dark blue one makes me think of stained glass windows and the aqua one is just so fresh and luminous in terms of the colors. I don't know if other men would appreciate them as much as i do, but I think they would. I believe people think men like more muted colors but that is not true of all of us. Thanks for the care you take in the design and building of the rosaries. I use mine every as I am new to being a Catholic even though I am 64 -- and not yet confirmed. So I pray the rosary every day. I also like having different types as I wear mine under my outer shirt and take every opportunity to look at it and think about what it means.
