A rosary is a series of beads set in a particular order to help count prayers. The most common rosary is used by the Catholic church. The elements of a rosary include a short strand connected to a loop of beads. The strand has a crucifix at one end, a large bead, three small beads, and a large bead. A long loop connects to the end of the strand opposite the crucifix.
It includes five sections of ten small beads, each separated by a large bead. The rosary can be worn as a statement of faith and a prayer aid, but it should not be worn as a fashion statement or piece of decorative jewelry.
