In ancient China, jade was used as a talisman to attract good fortune, friendship and loyalty. Yellow jade is is bright translucent yellow. Some say Yellow Jade will enhance the virtues of intelligence, and concentration.
The accent bead may look different from what you see in the picture. We may use a round bead, or it may be an irregularly shaped, golden jade nugget. They are strung on super strong nylon polyamid thread.
We string our Bahai Prayer Beads with 95 semi-precious stones plus 5 counter beads. Since we use them ourselves, we string the beads loosely. This way they pass easily between your fingers as you pray.
Each set of prayer beads comes with a copy of the Gift of Prayers as well as a fold-out instruction sheet. This contains common prayers, a pronunciation guide and an explanation of some of the many ways to use prayer beads. The set comes packaged in a velvet, drawstring pouch.
The beads are 6mm round which makes the strand about 22-23″ inches in circumference. This allows them to double as a necklace for people who wear a small hat size.
The care and craftsmanship we put into stringing the beads mirrors the delicate beauty of the beads. Each stone is like a little work of art with God’s signature shining out. The moderate price for a hand-crafted item makes them excellent gift. Think of prayer beads as gifts for special occasions like birthdays, Holy Days, anniversaries, graduations, or when someone becomes a Bahá’í.
The quality is unconditionally guaranteed, but please read the description of the size of the bead and the length of the strand because there is a 10% restocking fee if returned because they aren’t the size you expected.
