Loving my new Mala

The mala is beautifully made and is made of very high quality materials. Really helps me focus while meditating, will be recommended to everyone I know that meditates.

Thank you so much for your review, Justin! We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. May all beings benefit!

Lovely in every way

I’m so happy with my Mala of Merit purchase! I have received many compliments and find it a comfort to wear daily to remember kindness to myself and others. I hold them when feeling worried. They are a reminder to be present. The stones and craftsmanship is of the highest quality. So gorgeous and the weight is perfect. (a good heft but not heavy at all)
They arrived very quickly. The owners are real people. Beautiful work.
I will be wearing this forever.

Thank you so much for your review, Jen! We are thrilled that you are happy with your mala. As always, please don't hesitate to reach out to us for any reason. May all beings benefit from your practice.


I felt a sense of serenity as soon as I put them in my hands. Made like an Italian would with Love.

Emilio, your review made us both giggle with glee! We are happy that holding your mala produced such an intense sensation and that you are happy with your purchase. May all beings benefit!

Beautiful Design and Quality Craftsmanship

The gorgeous mala arrived in tact and on time in quality packaging. I absolutely love the gems chosen and the intention. The team at Mala of Merit provided personal and caring service.

Elissa, Thank you for your review. We are thrilled to know that you are pleased with your mala as well as our service. It is our utmost goal to ensure every purchase comes with a personal touch. May all beings benefit from your practice!


I gravitated towards the Transformation mala. I liked the colors and the bodhi seed. It was beautiful and I wore it for many months before passing it on to another who had a difficult path. The second one I got with the intention of giving it to a friend; life is change and I hope the mala provides some comfort. Mary Lee has a good soul and that, even more than the mala’s exquisite craftsmanship and beauty, results in a peaceful piece. Thank you ✌️

John, Thank you so much for your review! I am so happy to hear that you are sharing the benefits of this practice with others. I hope your friend finds peace and joy in every new moment. Always with metta, Mary Lee

I’m so glad I purchased my mala beads from Mala of Merit. My mala beads came in a beautiful box and the beads are just beautiful. I showed my two sisters and now they want me to buy one for each of them. I’ll be purchasing more soon for my sisters and another one for myself.

Thank you so much for your review, Rachel. I am thrilled to know that you are pleased with your mala! With metta, Mary Lee

A daily reminder

The first thing I noticed with this Mala was the weight of it. That alongside the unboxing, you can tell it is high quality, and not just some mass produced item. The weight of it on my shoulders is a constant reminder that it is there and to always keep pushing forward and to never to stagnant. The energy from it is absolutely real!

Thank you for your lovely review, Ben. May all beings benefit from your practice! With metta, Mary Lee

Divine Grace Mala
Grace M.
Perfect Mala

This Mala is made with so much detail and care it looks and feels like luxury. And the way it feels is truly spiritual. It is a beautiful accessory/tool that leads me to do my practice, and feels perfect and special on my fingertips as I chant my mantras, as well as wearing it around my neck. It is a beautiful reminder of the intentions I make as I walk through my day. Thank you so much for my favorite mala.

Grace, We are thrilled that you are happy with your mala and that it brings positivity to your practice and reminds you of your daily intentions. May all beings benefit! With metta, Mary Lee

Serenity Mala
Loreen K.
Beautiful product- totally worth the investment

The beads are lovely and the piece is clearly made with care. The unboxing was great, and the beads will be kept in their little box. I am still learning my practice but look forward to taking my Serenity Mala on the journey. It would have been even more amazing if there was a small card included with the description & beads, as seen on the website. Thanks again.

Loreen, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and feedback about including a mala description and information about the beads in the package. It is absolutely something we have been considering. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you would like any assistance in using your mala for your practice. With metta, Mary Lee

Beautiful Mala! Everything about it was great, the shipping was fast, the box it came in itself was beautiful, and it’s the perfect size. I have it with me everywhere!

Love it!

A beautiful Mala. I couldn't be more pleased with the quality. Will be buying more.

I love this mala!

I have owned a few malas from amazon. This is my first handmade mala. I completely understand how big the difference is in quality and the feeling it gives. I can’t explain that part but from the moment I got the mala, I felt the energy that went into making it. That’s something that one made in a factory cant ever give. I 100% love this mala. Thanks, Mala of Merit!

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, Joseph. I am so happy that you are enjoying your mala from Mala of Merit! We take pride in crafting each one with love and care for our customers.

These beads are so beautiful! I love how they feel and look.

The beautiful gemstones in these necklaces really make a statement. I like wearing my mala as an everyday accessory so it's perfect whether you want to layer or mix things up the custom designs get compliments every time. My Divine Grace Mala is my favorite. I have worn it for a few months now and it is holding up way better than other malas I have purchased before.

Thank you so much for your review Kim! I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying our mala.
I'm sorry to hear that other malas have not held up as well, we take pride in the quality of our products and hope they continue to bring you peace of mind.

Beautiful to say the least!

I was hopeful that this would be worth the money since it's perhaps more expensive than others on the market and when it arrived (very fast shipping) I was amazed. Very high quality item and beautifully presented. I love it! Will be ordering others in the future without question.

Thank you for your kind words, Anica! I'm so glad to hear that our Mala exceeded your expectations and that it arrived quickly.
I hope you enjoy wearing this beautiful piece of love every day as much as we enjoyed creating it for you.
And thank you for being a part of the Mala of Merit family!

Personalized Service Like No Other Business

These are the REAL deal! They arrived on time and in perfect condition. The box was a nice touch, it really showed that they care about their products to make sure you get a nice presentation when receiving their mala's. It gives off an excellent first impression from all those who including myself (I am not prone toward wearing costume pieces). Comes complete with box for storage, personalized service like no other company provides these days.

Thank you so much for your kind words John! We take a lot of pride in the quality and presentation of our products, and it's wonderful to hear that we were able to exceed your expectations. We hope your mala brings you continued self-improvement.

Empowerment Mala
Marie F.
You can see and feel the love of this mala!

I am very happy with the one I chose, Empowerment..a gift to myself. I cant see delicate work went to do this Mala. I can tell there was a lot of love instilled while making it! Excellent choice of moonstone and labradorite that compliment each other so much. The pictures really don't do this mala justice. Such a beautiful work of art. Thanks, Mala of Merit!

Dear Marie,

Thank you so much for your lovely review! I'm sorry that the photos didn't do justice for your beautiful mala (not that its a bad thing :) We are so happy that you love it and we hope it brings you a lot of happiness and peace.

Perfect In Every Way 😍

The moment I opened my package from Mala of Merit, the weight and quality hit me. These beads are gorgeous! They're perfect for meditation or just wearing around your neck - they hang beautifully either way. The price is great too because there's a lot of junk out on market, now that we've found what really matters: purity in design paired with high-quality materials like tiger eye (my favorite!). I'm so thankful to have found these amazing folks at such an affordable price; if you're looking into them don't hesitate another second... BUY IT! Sat Nam

Thank you for your review Ashely. I'm happy to hear that the Mala of Merit has brought you peace and joy--that's what we strive for!

The quality of our materials and craftsmanship are top priority. We hope you'll continue to enjoy wearing it long after your meditation practice is complete!

These Mala of Merit prayer beads truly are a wonderful way to bring oneself closer with the divine.

I have been using them for years and find that each bead has its own unique benefits, depending on what you want from your practice that day or how deep into relaxation mode we've gotten ourselves! I love the lava stone and rose quartz in this mala. On days I'm feeling stressed I use this one to really settle in and ground myself.

Thank you for your review, Alex! I'm so glad to hear that our mala is helping you on your meditation journey and find the beads are a great way to ground and let it all go. Enjoy the present moment.

Empowerment Mala
Erica R.
I bought the empowerment for myself.... I love it!

I love how they're beautifully made and have great quality, but what really amazed me was how much thought went into their packaging. When my boyfriend saw this gift for us both he said "These will be perfect because we can share." The empowerment message behind these pieces is outstanding too - it's always nice when someone else notices your gifts as well-not just yours alone ;)

Thank you, Erica, for your kind words! I'm so glad that the Mala of Merit has been a blessing to you and your loved one.
I hope that you will continue to enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed making it.

Illumination Mala

The Howlite .... Just WOW!

Wow! These are so worth the money. The beads are gorgeous and the howlite is real white--I can't believe how amazing it feels in my hands when I hold them, like the perfect weight. Nothing but strength from these beautiful malas that will last forever because they're made out of natural materials rather than metal or plastic,like I got from another shop.

Thank you for sharing your experience with our mala, James. I'm so glad to hear that you are pleased with the purchase and find it helpful in your practice!
We hope you enjoy wearing/using your mala as much as we enjoyed making them for you!

Divine Grace Mala
Jenny S.
The amount of compliments I receive wearing the divine grace mala helps me start conversations ab...

The craftsmanship is outstanding and the malas are so gorgeous. I have a large collection of malas that are mostly made from sandalwood, but the gemstone malas intrigued me and I purchased two males. The Divine Grace Mala is a perfect combination of stunning design with lava stone and rose quartz.

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with Mala of Merit, Jenny. I'm so glad to hear that our products have been a blessing in your life and that the Divine Grace Mala is bringing you joy!

Mindfulness is the true solution for PTSD!

My favorite thing to do with this mala is hold it during times when I need a little extra calm or focus. The repetition of movement helps me stay focused on something physical and mental, which benefits my body in ways not even doctors can explain! I read the inspiration for this mala and I knew it would be perfect for me. Thanks, Mary Lee and to your husband for everything! Hopefully I can continue helping others as well.

Thank you for your review, Andy! I'm so glad to hear that the Mala of Merit is a helpful tool in your life.
We are honored by the opportunity to help people find peace and balance through mindfulness. I hope you will continue to enjoy this mala as much as you have been so far!
