    I don't understand why these are seen as a fashion accessory - they're a Catholic thing used in prayer, and if you aren't Catholic why wear them?

    I see them as a religious item tbh, not something to wear on a night out. I have a set of proper rosary beads that I brought when I visited my Great grandfathers hometown in Ireland.

    To be honest my opinion of anyone who wears them to be uneducated, ignorant, disrespectful scum.

    Actually it was mainly because you shop at ASOS and Primark. It isn't far enough that you are offensive to Christians, but you're offensive to God himself for having poor taste, if you're going to be offensive you might as well do it with some style, not cheapo cheesewire tat from the scourge of the internet/high street.

    Although of course you will burn in hell as well.

    It looks silly. And I don't get why someone would wear a religious symbol as a fashion accessory.

    What?? People actually wear these as a fashion statement?? Why, it's a rosary??

    I've seen some people wearing them and thought it was people being very religious, oh dear me.

    If you really want to wear one... I noticed they did some in Topman a few weeks ago when shopping with a friend. Not sure whether they still do them though. They have started to come back into fashion in recent weeks, mostly for girls though...

    If you do, get something a bit nicer - ie, not a plastic one from Topman. I've never thought of them as a trend, to be honest: people have been wearing them purely as a style thing for years.

    I don't need to get to know you. If you shop at cheapskate rubbish stores like ASOS, we can't ever be friends, sorry.
    So the price of one's clothes is directly related to how stylish they are, and their worth as a person?

    Exactly! I'm so glad someone else gets it!

    Goodness, that's the first one I've ever seen that's actually accurate (except the ones that are actually used for praying ). I personally don't see them as an item of fashion, they have a lot of religious meaning to some people, and I don't really like the fact that people wear them as a fashion accessory, 'tis a tad disprespectful and inappropriate in my opinion.
