This compact all-metal rosary is rugged, functional, and portable.  It has a meaningful history, as it is a replica of the service combat rosaries issued by the government to soldiers, sailors, and flying aces during WWI. Now with a new beautiful upgraded quality Pardon Crucifix, the WWI Battle Beads rosaries are the closest replica available to the vintage antique service combat rosaries from 1916!

These rosaries are quite strong, do not tangle, are small and portable, and very easy to carry in your pocket. The nickel-free Silver finished brass chains are no-rust, no-tangle, and have a great weight and feel. 

The Our Father beads are slightly larger to aid in meditative prayer.  You can feel where you are as you move through prayers and at 21" long, they are wearable but still bunch up small enough to carry in your pocket.  

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

As with all Rugged Rosaries, you may add optional medals. We recommend only adding up to 4. Some of our photos show an optional medal attached.

You can read more about the original antique WWI service rosary HERE.

The Pardon Crucifix grants indulgences.  For more information about the Pardon Crucifix, you can download a printable .pdf file about it by clicking HERE

Thank you for shopping and God Bless.

 

** Please note that the centerpiece medal is sometimes depicted in English, and sometimes in Latin, however, we only use the finest quality available from Italy. The different versions are due to availability and supply issues.

Awesome Rosary!!!

I have two of these Gun Metal rosaries now. First one was a single decade that I carry in my pocket all the time. I decided to get a full rosary and I absolutely love it. It is substantial and well defined as well as comfortable in my hand. Reflective prayer with my eyes closed is very possible. I love that it is american made and the quality is perfect. The other nice note is that it will not tangle. Thanks RR! I'll recommend you to my friends.

It’s made with the same quality as my other WW1 rosary. This is my third rosary I have bought and the quality never disappoints. I am always getting compliments and questions at church whenever we pray the rosary. I got my dad the KoC rosary and everyone in his council wanted to know where they can get one.

Love holding a piece of history!

The seven sorrows rosary is well made! I especially love how it sounds when it clinks together on itself. A wonderful addition to my prayer life. My spiritual weapon for such a time as these days!
