St. Michael CHAPLET configuration
  • Historic WWI Service Combat Rosary design
  • Italian Silver finish St. Michael Centerpiece
  • Traditional 3 Nail Catholic Crucifix
  • St. Michael is the Patron Saint for Soldiers, Law Officers
  • Silver finish over Brass pull chain beads that do not rust
  • Non-allergenic, Non-Corrosive
  • Double-loop split rings for strength = no lost medals
  • Includes a small round container for portability and storage

This compact all-metal Chaplet is rugged, functional, and portable.  It has a meaningful history, as it is reproduced in the same style of the service combat rosaries issued by the government to soldiers, sailors, and flying aces during WWI, hence the name. This version is in the configuration of the St. Michael Chaplet.

We have faithfully duplicated the historic rosaries with the same type of pull chain used in military dog tags, so you know it's strong.  We also use double looped split rings for a stronger and safer attachment between medals and chain. 

St. Michael is the patron saint to lead you in the Catholic army.  He is the patron saint for Soldiers and all Law Enforcement and is the most popular Saint requested by our customers. 

At 20" long, this rosary can be worn.  We designed these specifically for our customers who wanted a smaller, functional and rugged rosary.

Although the WWI Battle Beads St. Michael Chaplet is rugged enough to carry in your pocket, we do include a small round container for portability and storage.

Thank you for shopping and God Bless.

My favorite rosary makers!

I have now purchased at least 5 or 6 rosaries from Rugged Rosaries and each one has been made beautifully and strong! I would (and have) recommend them to anyone looking for a rosary that won't fall apart about a year. In my experience there is no other company that can compare to Rugged Rosaries!

Seven Sorrows Battle Bead Rosary

I bought two of these, one for me and one for Mrs. Me. They are perfect rosaries for us because we wind up with a lot of broken rosaries, with 6 grand kids just around the corner from us. I used to be good at fixing the broken ones, but now that I'm 75, not so much. I have about six rosaries from Rugged Rosaries and I love all of them.

A Blessing and a Lifeline

The rosary is a lifeline for my care of veterans wounded by war
