This compact all metal rosary is rugged, functional, and portable. It has a meaningful history, as we designed it like the service rosaries issued to soldiers, sailors, and flying aces during WWI, hence the name.
The original WWI Service Rosaries are highly sought after by collectors today. The fact that many of the vintage service rosaries still exist after being carried in battle is testimony to their ruggedness. We have faithfully duplicated these great rosaries with the same type of chain used in dog tags. We also use split rings instead of jump rings for a stronger and safer attachment between crucifix and chain.
These rosaries are quite strong, do not tangle, are small and portable, and very easy to carry in your pocket. At 21" long, they can still be worn around your neck under your shirt. We designed these specifically for our customers who wanted a smaller, functional and rugged rosary.
Our Battle Beads have a Miraculous center piece, come in traditional silver colored finish, and an Italian Pardon Crucifix. We also have a version called the WWI Triple Threat Battle Beads™ with a St. Michael centerpiece and our stunning Triple Threat Crucifix™ which you can see HERE.
Although, the WWI Military Battle Beads™ rosary is rugged enough to carry in your pocket, we do include a leatherette zippered pouch for extra protection or storage.
As with all our rosaries, you may add optional medals. We recommend only adding up to 2. Some of our photos show an optional medal attached.
