Frequently Asked Questions
We only use ethically sourced high-quality natural, never dyed, or treated semi-precious gemstones in our malas. Many of the less expensive malas you will find are using dyed or treated lower-quality beads in their malas to save on costs and make the gemstones look identical in shape and color. These may look better initially due to consistent bead color but over time the dyes and colors will leach the chemicals and fade from the gemstones.
Our malas are much more to us than just a product that can be manufactured by a machine. A mala made by us is always handmade following traditional mala-making methods. Every mala bead is strung and as each individual knot is tied locking the mala bead in place while a mantra is recited to bring love and goodwill to the new owner. This takes more time, and we are not able to make them at the same cost of a machine, we know that a Mala of Merit means more the moment you put it on and feel our love and energy that comes with it that no machine made mala can replicate.
Note-With gemstones unfortunately we are not able to trace them back all the way to the mines and verify this….we spent hours trying, and to be honest almost anyone who says they have may be stretching the truth, it’s just not possible as beads will come from separate mines around the world.
When a mala breaks it represents a broken cycle. Don’t let that scare you it’s a sign of good luck. It is a symbol of growth both personal and spiritual. The intention you set when you received your mala may not even be complete, but it is a sign that you are not in the same place you were when you set the intention. It may be time to bring new energy and intentions in your life with a new mala.
We also understand that a mala can mean much more than that and we become attached to it. We will offer to restring it if you if would like for an additional charge. We are not able to set a price as each mala breaking is different sometimes beads are missing etc. So, if you have moved forward in life enough that your mala broke, please reach out to us directly at Support@MalaofMerit.com

We all have ordered things online, get super excited like a kid at their birthday party, open the box and it’s not even close to what we expected, it looks nothing like what you purchased, doesn’t fit, or was not even close to being anything resembling quality.
Don’t worry if you receive your order and, in that moment, you do not feel the love that went into it, it wasn’t what you expected, just don’t like the energy of it or ANY REASON AT ALL. You have 30 days for a full money back refund (minus shipping cost) no questions asked. Well, we might ask a few to see how else we can help you, but you will NEVER be hassled about a refund and getting your money back we only want to see how else we can help you continue on your journey of improvement. You can read the full process for a refund request HERE.
