This necklace was the closest thing I found to a Chanel rosary

Growing up Catholic, I lived in a pretty lax household. My Mom did not enforce any sort of strict Virgin Suicides discipline and I was raised to love gays and embrace birth control. That being said there was one no-no that my Mom did embed in my brain "Rosaries are not fashion accessories!". Rosaries are undoubtedly gorgeous and do look beautiful with some ensembles, but I have never been tempted to wear one myself until last night. I was browsing @emilywweiss on Instagram when I came across an oldish picture of Pharrell and some seriously lust worthy bling. A Chanel rosary complete with jade beads and a diamond cross. WHOA! "Gotta have it" and "What is my credit card limit" were my first thoughts followed by "Mother would be appalled!" Well it turns out that Mom will not have to worry about my bank account (like I could afford this anyway) and my soul, because this was custom made for Pharrell. I haven't lost all hope and I have decided to pen the House of Chanel myself.
I would like to make a request. Could you possibley make a Chanel rosary for the masses (Catholic pun intended). Preferably something simple and under $1,000.00? Although I am 27, I will happily disobey my Mom if you do so. Praise Coco. Amen.
