I can't say if my prayers are more efficacious, but I definitely spend more time on my knees praying the rosary! It has a nice weight and length, and since it is always in my pocket, the little zipper pouch is very handy. Several of my friends that I showed it to immediately wanted to know where I got it. The Benedictine Cross is a perfect choice for me, and the four-way medal is nice also. I am recommending this product highly to all!
WWI Battle Beads are exactly what I was looking for.
I wanted to let you know that I just loved the car rosary. It hangs beautifully on my rear view mirror. It is so well made and the colors are pretty. Thank you for making all your rosaries.
The quality is great. I would definitely recommend it. Thank you!
I say the rosary every day and this is one that will last a lifetime- I am very happy with it- I recommend it to everyone- get one get it blessed and carry on!
I got this as a birthday gift for my husband. He is beyond happy with it and carries it around everywhere. It's a constant reminder of the power of praying the Rosary and staying close to Our Lady.
These are beautifully made and so wonderfully masculine. The rosaries will be great Easter basket gifts for the men in our family. I bought this one and the Celctic version, both are nicely done.

Very happy with our purchase. It is for a young man's confirmation and we are excited for him to receive it. We made changes by requesting the medal to be replaced with the a different saint medal and it was done as expected.
Rosary's tend to be delicate I have several I've mended and afraid to use. I love this Rosary been looking a these for a while so glad I gave myself this Lent present. God Bless
I really love these. My first one's(the old bronze color crucifix broke in half(one of the little tri budded ones), but this was after many months of joining me on long road marches, airborne operations and live fires. RR replaced it for free and even upgraded it to a pardon crucifix.i also had a silver one which the chain popped, it was replaced and the new ones they say are stronger. They are great, masculine, no frills rosaries and the customer support from RR is outstanding. My first ones only broke after months of daily carry in rather harsh conditions
I'm VERY delighted about my new rosary.
For sure it will last longer that I will do!
Well made and sturdy. Love it
This is the best thing I have done in a long time and it was well worth it! I love my rosaries and will be ordering more for Easter and Christmas for family! Thanks RR!!! God bless!!
Thank you for making this rosary. I carry it with me always and you are right. It does not tangle at all.
Very sturdy and rugged but not too heavy.
Yet another outstanding Rosary, and a gift that was greatly appreciated. Quality. Fast and updated delivery. Will be ordering many more in the future.
I had a Rugged Rosary from before, so I went online to order one for a good friend / about to be a seminarian. He got it and really liked it, and I ordered another different one, the Knights Templar one, for myself, and really liked it too. It's a man's rosary. THANK YOU for "producing" these. Will be recommending to others and ordering more for gifts.
Perfect rosary for withstanding the everyday wear and tear, have broken many rosaries by accident before, the latest one during my field exercise in the army, but this one seems to be able to take the heat.
Rosary is much bigger than a typical one, but it is perfect for me as I prefer having larger beads in my hands and looks amazing.
The imagery on the crucifix is what drew me to this particular rosary. I received my rosary within four days (shipped cross country). The rosary is just as pictured. It is very well made and is truly a Rugged Rosary! I love the imagery from the crucifixion story included on the crucifix. I have a sense of peace while I'm carrying it with me - peace of mind that the rosary is not likely to break and the peace that comes from prayer. Thanks for a great product and speedy delivery. May God bless the Rugged Rosary team!
The beads are wonderful. They are all that was promised. Beautiful, functional, and sturdy. The shipping time was also exemplary. Aside from Amazon, I've never received anything so quickly. Excellent work and thanks again!
Spiritual Warfare for the Battle of Your Soul
First and foremost, I want to thank the Rugged Rosaries Staff and continue to pray for them for their crucial importance in playing a critical role in bringing prayer in our lives through their unique spiritual weapons and instruments of peace of chaplets and rosaries that draws us to holiness and in union with God.
Second of all, the Knights Templar Rosary is large rosary with large beads compared to others, and a very practical rosary that can withstand a harsh environment and a lot of handling without breaking or falling apart. The Knights Templar were tied to the crusades and has a lot of history behind the Cross, a portion were real knights, this Christian military order was founded in 1119 A.D. with the public decree of the Pope Innocent II in 1139, who protected the Christian pilgrims on their way to visit the holy land in Jerusalem. In 1307, during the later years, leaders and members were tortured, killed, and burned at the stake for false accusations. In 1312, Pope Clement V under pressure of King Philip IV of France who took advantage of the situation, disbanded the Knights Templar for distrust and debt to the order.
Thirdly, use the Rosary, pray with the Rosary. It is not just a show-piece or decoration; it is a spiritual instrument of battle and of peace. Pray the Rosary daily to give you interior strength to resist those negative habits, addictions, and compulsions, and help you turn away from sin. Replace them with good habits, good intentions, and pray for others as well, as unbeknownst to you and me, there is an invisible battle being waged for our souls. You matter. We matter. We are all worthy of God’s mercy. It doesn’t matter if you fall a thousand times, as long it’s the struggle you love and not the fall. Continue to fight, get back up, and persevere in this life, for the salvation of our souls is at hand.
May God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord give us grace, mercy, and peace....
I've bought it for my fiancee and a WWI replica for myself. They are both very well made and very beautiful. I will surely buy more for my friends.
the rosary is very impressive
These Battle Beads are fantastic! I've been asked by several people where I got this Rosaries. Plus they've pasted the "Acid Test" my 10 month old grandson has not been able to break them!
Aesthetically pleasing and feels good in the hand. My pardon crucifix has an unsightly blob attaching the corpus' head to the cross. Perhaps the spacing knots on either side of the skull beads could be single knots as they feel similar to the beads in size; if my hands were cold I'd have trouble distinguishing them by touch. Finally, the space between the knots for the three silver beads could be slightly bigger to let the Ave beads move a bit more. Very nice rosary.
Dear R&R Team,
I'm super excited to have my hands on my new Battle Beads rosary aka my spiritual shield and buckler to go along with my Gentleman's rosary aka my spiritual Battle Axe! Those two sacramentals to go in addition with the wearing my Scapular and Miraculous Metal (along with reading the holy Bible daily of course!) are the firepower needed to help me fight the good fight! And if I show reverence to them (which I do!), the spiritual battle will be won by a landslide! No contest and not even close. The love of God always (ALWAYS!) conquers the devil (lowercase d!) and evil! All you holy mighty angels and saints of God, pray for me and defend US in battle! I love you Jesus, Mary and Joseph, Amen!
This is a beautiful and very rugged rosary. Looks like it is built to last. Have already begun using it daily. Only suggestion would be to add a St. Kevin's medal in honor of the man who founded the monastery at Glendalough. Other than that, I am loving this rosary and look forward to using it for years to come.
I ordered this rosary because I constantly break or tangle my rosary on my pocket ever since I was in the military. I had stopped carrying my rosary since then. This WWI replica rosary had given me the chance to carry a rosary without fear. In fact I have informed all my brothers at my church and our Friars are looking at getting some.
I bought one after the chaplin at my high school told me about them. They are very well made and perfect for anyone.
This is the best one I have ever seen, long enough to wear, allows the driver to rip off a quick decade during lights and looks sharp hanging from the rear view. As always another well made product. I urge everyone to get this item
This is the second rosary I've purchased. Both are perfect: rugged, attractive and built tough so that I can have the rosary with me at all times. I particularly love the WWI rosary I just purchased. Thank you for a great product.
I'm very happy with the cross,its very nice and ruggedly built,just as advertised.The shipping was very prompt as well. I'll definitely be purchasing more products from Rugged Rosaries!
Very pleased with the quality and construction. I belive this Rosary would last a person for a lifetime.
Thank you very much.
Just a quick note to say thank you for the high quality rosary that I purchased. I enjoy the ruggedness of the rosary while it still has simple charm. Keep up the good work!
The Rosary is beautiful and has real significance.
One of my great grandsons will be having his 1st Communion next month.
He is rather hyper and I felt this type of Rosary would stand up to the
wear and tear of an eight year old. Obviously it is not a toy but very
active children can do damage!! I'm sure the Rosary will be tested!
I love praying the Rosary and the Rugged Rosary is beautiful.
Thank you and God Bless
The rosary is already powerful. But this one gives it and enduring strength. I often feel I can wrap it around my hand and let Our Lady take down evil
Absolutely love the product, had a question and contacted customer service, very timely response.
I have already gotten so much joy and comfort from my prayer beads that I am truly blessed. My old set, is very, very special and in frail shape. Now that I have my Rugged set, I can put away my old set for special occasions.
I will cherish my prayers beads as long as I live. They are so soothing for my soul. God bless you.✝
You can read a ton of reviews about their beautiful rosaries and I absolutely love mine. But what really impressed me was their customer service. I made several changes and in the process some mistakes were made on both sides, but they resolved each issue fast and professional. Very refreshing in this day and age with companies. I love my rosary and I love the team there, I hope for them the best! My 3 year old boy wants one now, so that he and have one just like daddy and I won't hesitate to order one again. Thank you!
The Gun Metal Black Paracord Rosary I ordered came quickly and is exactly what I have been looking for. The medals are attached with a double-band of metal, similar to a small keychain loop. This rosary will not come apart in my pocket! I'm looking forward to praying this rosary for many years! Blessings, Dcn John
Got this for my dad's birthday and now I want one for myself (even though I'm a woman, ha)! I loved the crucifix!
This rosary arrived very quickly after placing the order. It is sturdy and reflects the durability that the soldiers during WWI would have wanted when they were praying. My grandfather served in WWI and most probably had one during his time in the Army. Thank you for reproducing this rosary.
This knotted rosary is exactly what I had wanted; simple, traditional and strong. Shannon and Emily were wonderful in helping me to get exactly what I needed. Thank you!
We are very pleased with our rosary. The quality and finish are top notch. We will recommend you to our friends and family. Tom Frey
Absolutely outstanding service, and quality.. just as advertised, and received within the week.
came quickly, high quality rosary. has the proper number of beads, great feel to it.
Love my new rosary. It definitely looks like it will hold up. Very nicely made. I have recommended this site to friends.
This is my ninth rugged rosary. Everything is outstanding. Quality, price, delivery. Rugged rosaries are my go to gift. Thank you
Very sturdy rosary which should last me the rest of my life. The shipping information that I received was accurate and I received my rosary in a timely manner and in perfect condition.
