The existence of Prayer Beads dates all the back to 5,000 BC. Prayer Beads can be seen depicted in ancient murals and paintings from Greece and India. From the 3rd to 5th centuries many Christians used pebbles, stones and knotted ropes as Prayer Beads. These ancient forms of Prayer Beads were referred to as paternosters. They were used to count repetitions of the Lord’s Prayer. As time went on Roman Catholics and Anglicans started using Prayer Beads and the traditional 59 bead rosary was created. At the time many Catholic artisans started creating intricate prayer beads and rosaries strands on chains of gold and silver using stones like amethyst, glass, rose quartz, black onyx, pearl and obsidian as accent beads.

In Islam prayer beads are referred to as Misbaha, Sibha and Tasbih. They usually contain 99 beads and are used to count while saying a prayer to Allah. Many Sikh worshipers use mala prayer beads when reciting prayer verses from the Guru Granth Sahib. It is customary in Sikh culture to wear prayer beads around the wrist and around turbans. In Hinduism prayer beads have also been used for hundreds of years. Hinduism practitioners call their version of prayer beads japa mala. Japa malas are used to aid in counting when repeating Hindu mantras. Countries all over across East Asia also have used prayer beads throughout history. The Chinese refer to prayer beads as Shuzhu and the Japanese refer to prayer beads as Juzu. Mala beads are also used in many Tibetan Buddhist practices.

On top of being absolutely beautiful many users and wearers of Prayer Beads attach different meanings to the many colors and forms that they come in. Red prayer beads are said to be grounding and energizing. Pink prayer beads are said to help balance emotions and encourage unconditional love. Orange prayer beads are for stimulating creativity and stress relief. Yellow prayer beads are said to have a uplifting energy that inspires wisdom. Green prayer beads are said to help connect the wearer with mother earth and soothe the mind. Blue prayer beads are said to protect the wearer from negative energy.
