Greek Worry Beads (Komboloi) originated thousands of years ago in the prayer beads of many cultures and traditions...Hindu, Christian and Moslem. Today they are used for their comforting effect....helping smokers to quit, the anxious to breathe more deeply, the very pregnant to be patient...and as a remembrance to all of the Greek people and their culture. All Worry Beads available in different colors are sold "Assorted," i.e. we choose colors for you based on what we have in stock. If you would like to order a style in a particular color that you see shown here, please call us to check on availability.
