ok, now this is not a necklace right? This is a rosary? They carry it in their hands and count the beads? You're probably thinking, "where has she been?" lol, just explain so we can both know. I love the wooden beads against the silver.

It is indeed a rosary. It is used in prayer and mediation and I have seen them worn. They are used by both men and women in the Catholic Church. Praying the Rosary, is a very important Catholic tradition. It is a popular First Communion and Confirmation Gift.
