The WWI Battle Beads Combat Rosary from Rugged Rosaries - The originals!

  • 【HISTORIC DESIGN】The Historical based design of the WWI Battle Beads Combat Rosary is inspired by the vintage 1916 WWI Service Combat Rosary. The vintage rosaries were handed out to soldiers, sailors, and flying aces in the World War I era over 100 years ago. Our rosaries very closely reproduce the historical rosary design. It is beautiful yet made to withstand the harsh environments of war.
  • 【CRAFTSMANSHIP】These WWI Battle Beads Combat Rosaries are the original Battle Beads handmade by the Rugged Rosaries’ artisans in our Texas studio since 2012. These are NOT the inferior quality mass-produced copies! We use brass ball chains with silver patina. They are strong, non-magnetic, non-corrosive, and weighty feeling. The Our Father beads are slightly larger to aid your meditative prayer. The beads glide smoothly through your fingers.
  • 【SIZE】The overall length of these rosaries is 21.5 inches. They can be worn, but also bunch up nicely to carry in your pocket as these beads don’t kink, or tangle up, like ordinary jewelry style rosaries. The St. Benedict crucifix is of the highest quality and has great detail and is 2.25 inches tall. The Our Lady Miraculous Center Medal is 1 inch.
  • 【GIFT PACKAGE】This strong and durable rosary makes a thoughtful and meaningful gift for Catholic men, women, and teens for years to come. It is packaged in a Rugged Rosaries round box which is great for gift giving and storage.
  • 【BRAND】Rugged Rosaries is your trusted source for Roman Catholic gear since 2012. Our sincerest prayer is that with Our Lady's loving intercession and grace, each rosary will provide strength, comfort, peace, and hope to those seeking the Lord's will. Thank you for shopping and God Bless. --- Rugged Rosaries is a registered trademark Reg. No. 4,779,215. WWI Battle Beads is a registered trademark Reg. No. 5,445,339.--- Copyright Cordbands 2021

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!
By Dbon82 on August 25, 2019
Beautiful! It will last a lifetime and I will pass it down to my kids if proper cared for. I am a recently separated Navy Veteran and I can confirm that the small beads that attach the larger ones are made of the same material, size and sturdiness as the one I was issued in the US military. The be honest, the larger ones are exactly the same too just with the obvious size differences. You will have to be really careless or purposely try, to damage this beautiful Rosary. It has small (8mm give or take) key rings that attach the cross and the medal and can be easily swapped if necessary. I bought another cross because I wanted a very detailed St. Benedict crucifix (Hzman stainless st. Benedict crucifix pendant necklace INRI) nothing wrong with the one that came with just a matter of preference and I love it. It is ridiculously light weight! My new crucifix alone is heavier that the beads itself, still I love it and will recommend this rosary to anyone on a heartbeat it was delivered a week in advanced without any issues. Thank you Rugged Rosaries for outstanding craftsmanship I am 100% satisfied with my rosary.

5.0 out of 5 stars An easy 5 out of 5.
By Eric Hasso on March 2, 2018
This is a very nice rosary that is sturdy and attractive looking. The crucifix is especially nice as is the St. Benedict medal. Do note that the beads are smaller and closer together than a more traditional rosary, so it feels slightly different when you first use it. I would recommend this rosary to those of us who "pray hard" and tend to lose crucifixes and break chain links!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Absolutely LOVE my New Rosary!
By Ellie A. on November 13, 2018
My new rosary is very sturdy as well as beautiful. I can tell it was made with much care. It actually looks a lot better than on these pics. I was very comforted by having it hang from my rear-view mirror while I drove alone from Utah to California. I was intimidated by that long drive, so I hung it there as a reminder that we are never truly alone.
Also, I did not have to concern myself with any damage from the heat by exposure to the sun either. I think this is the best purchase I have made lately. I also intend to wear it occasionally. This makes a great gift- ESPECIALLY since it comes with a nifty metal container to keep it in (along with a cute wooden key-chain). You just can't beat this deal!
I highly recommend it.
OAN- I got a VERY approving look when someone noticed this from my car window- like I said- it's beautiful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing quality.
By Jack on August 20, 2018
Amazing quality! I love the feel of the beads in my hand as I pray the rosary. There is enough spacing between the Hail Mary beads and Our Father beads to differentiate between the two, so I am not worried about missing out on the updated larger Our Father bead rosary they came out with recently. I get a lot of compliments on this rosary, and when my priest blessed it, he commented on how durable and near indestructible these WWI rosaries are. I will definitely be keeping an eye out and getting more to give as presents.
