At CatholicShop.com, we carry a HUGE inventory of medals, pins, rosaries and much more! We're often asked how the sizes of our medals and pendants compare to each other and how to distinguish between standard and metric sizes. For your convenience, please use the chart below to determine the size of our medals. If you'd like to print out the chart to see actual size representations, an easy way to check if you've printed the chart correctly is to place a coin onto the coin images and see if they match up.

About our Jewelry
Gold Because of the softness of pure (24k) gold, it is usually alloyed with base metals for use in jewelry, altering its hardness and ductility, melting point, color and other properties. Alloys with lower karat rating, typically 22k, 18k, 14k or 10k, contain higher percentages of copper or other base metals or silver or palladium in the alloy.
Sterling Silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5 by weight of silver and 7.5 by weight of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925. Fine silver, for example 99.9% pure silver, is generally too soft for producing functional objects; therefore, the silver is usually alloyed with copper to give it strength while preserving the ductility and appearance of the precious metal.
Rhodium is a rare, silvery-white, hard, member of the platinum group. Naturally occurring rhodium is usually found as the free metal, alloyed with similar metals and is one of the rarest and most valuable precious metals. Rhodium is a noble metal, resistant to corrosion, found in platinum or nickel ores together with the other members of the platinum group metals.
Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper, antimony, bismuth and sometimes, less commonly today, lead. Silver is also sometimes used.

I want to send out a very special THANK YOU to Pat for being so kind and an awesome human being. He was quite helpful and VERY understanding. I ordered the tiger eye Rosary and it was absolutely beautiful. I am so excited to give it to my Son for Christmas!
I accidentally submitted an order for too many items. I got on Chat and Bonnie answered immediately. Best customer service ever! She immediately corrected the problem and gave me credit. And she was super-friendly as she did it. These people exemplify the spirit of Jesus.
This rosary is so much nicer in person than in the photo! Love it so much I keep buying more. The quality is super, and it's very durable. Thank you!
I want to take a moment to thank the Catholic Shop for their impeccable service and prompt responses. There was a minor issue with one of the bracelets I ordered and it became a non-issue instantly. I was so pleasantly surprised and so happy and received a replacement within days with NO hassles....
My Mother gave this same medal to me 50 yrs ago for my First Communion. I loved it so! While outside playing, I lost it and was heart sick. I recently needed to purchase a gift for our Grand Niece's Communion and I saw the same Medal! It was such a beautiful sight to my heart. I bought her one...
