How a Ghirelli Rosary is made

Made in Italy

From inspiration to completion

JOIN US IN THE HEART OF ITALY

From a soul fed with beauty and family, deepened and matured in prayer, and rested in meaningful reflection and considerations, we create a world for ourselves that welcomes in the spiritual. Love is spiritual, not tangible in and of itself, but there are manifestations of it everywhere we turn, in a smile, a touch, an embrace. Let each link, each bead, lead you to sense in your humanity what your soul already intuits.
In everything, we seek to magnify the Beauty of Faith, hence the inspiration … a chain of roses reaching up to heaven, and a Magnificat Rosalet® you can wear and that we wish may represent the spiritual link we have to Heaven and to the others.

“Suddenly, in a moment, I could
see it in my mind…”

Witness the vision behind the world’s most beautiful, unique, and
revolutionary rosary, The Magnificat Rosalet®.

WE CREATE HEIRLOOMS AMONG THE CASTLES, CATHEDRALS, AND COBBLESTONES

On the banks of the River Po, in the province of Rovigo, between surprising nature and cultural wealth, lies our Maison.
Ghirelli is located on the border between Veneto and Emilia Romagna, a few kilometers away from the medieval Ferrara, a city of art whose historic center is a World Heritage Site. Within it, the Ferrara Cathedral stands out the most, built starting from the 12th century, bearing the signs of all the historical eras the city has passed through. Also steps from Ghirelli is the Castello Estense, the majestic symbol of Ferrara with its four towers surrounded by a moat.

ENVISIONING WHAT’S NEXT IN ROSARY DESIGN

It all begins by humbly placing ourself in God’s hands.
Ghirelli holds the mission of creating Rosaries that tell the Beauty of Faith. From this vantage point, and after a time of prayer, the company examines fashion, jewelry and manufacturing trends, updating its timeless treasures and making them inimitable.

IDEATION & FEASIBILITY

Envisioning, sketching, digital rendering, evaluation and testing. Each concept goes through rigorous design and performance phases. In the creation of the all new Magnificat Rosalet®, each detail has undergone all the necessary processes to ensure maximum durability and each precious metal component is selected and tested one by one, so as to make the Magnifcat Rosalet® even more beautiful and more enduring over time.

PROCESS

Using a combination of design technology and traditional medal-making methods, each component is cast in a mold with hot metal, and when cooled, removed and polished.
Everything comes to life within the company Ghirelli, from the initial idea to the executive phase, from production to finishing, a work made of experience and attention to quality that leads to the birth of unique creations, still handmade in Italy, one by one.

HAND ASSEMBLED, HAND PAINTED, HAND PACKAGED

Meticulous attention is put into each Ghirelli rosary, from casting to assembly and from enameling to packaging…each unique piece has myriad details that are cared for by our expert quality control team.
Our team members feel like extended family to us, and some have been with us from the very beginning, helping us grow from a curious, heartfelt inspiration, into a worldwide known brand.
This can only be accomplished with steadfast and updated systems of manufacturing, assembly and delivery. Longtime friendships and partnerships with renowned Italian metal suppliers and packaging companies enable us to be on the cusp of each upcoming jewelry and rosary trend, while achieving great quality and costs for our clients.

ROSARY ATELIER TO THE CHURCH AND THE WORLD

Chosen to serve the church in many official capacities, Ghirelli has always endeavored to supply as many retailers and sites around the world as possible, including high level events like the USA World Meeting of Families and the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C.
It is our hope that the quality, authenticity and especial beauty that Ghirelli has become so known for, will spread to every person and household, gracing wrists, held in pockets and handbags, gifted abundantly and brought out with devotion in moments of trial and moments of joy, infusing the love and grace of Our Lord and Our Lady everywhere a Ghirelli rosary travels, always magnifying love.

Worthy of Note

Signed, Ghirelli

We want to create an indissoluble union between the message and rosary: the rosary for us is not simply an object but a creative act; a real jewel created as an indispensable tool for meditation and prayer. For this reason we decided to sign our creations with a simple but concrete gesture in order to assert its originality and protect you from counterfeit imitations, which continue to increase in the marketplace.
Look for the signature, and know this rosary is real, for you.
