It’s become quite clear that 2011 is the year of the rosary in the world of hip hop. Crosses of nearly all designs, shapes and sizes have been hanging from gold or platinum chains through the generations. Jesus pieces have been worn on stars such as Lil Wayne all the way back to the Notorious BIG. Religious styles have always been hot among artists and fans of this global movement known as hip hop. In 2010, stars began wearing actual rosary designs, but with a modern twist. That twist is size and bling. Designs grew larger, rosaries got longer and stones were covering the entire pieces. As always, stars inspire a firestorm of followers who want the same style. However, like all celebrity worn jewelry, it is very expensive. Online hip hop jewelry retailer has released an affordable version for all to enjoy.
For those lucky enough to purchase genuine diamond jewelry, it was quite easy to order rosaries with completely iced out beads. These were custom made by specialty jewelers who cater to the stars. The problem was each bead would contain over 50 stones and the labor and materials start to add up quickly. It is hard to find a custom made item such as an iced rosary for less than $5,000. Most fashion jewelry stores stick to classic designs and therefore do not seek to create items where the market is so limited. This makes is almost impossible to find an affordable iced out rosary in a store.

Recently released is one of the most popular iced rosaries of all time, the iced bead style. This style is very similar to a traditional rosary, comprised primarily of beads.
