The WWI Battle Beads Rosary is a replica of the service combat rosaries that the US Government issued to soldiers, sailors, and flying aces of WWI and WWII. The original rosaries were first produced in 1916 and our version is a loyal replica. You can still find the originals for sale on auction sites such as eBay and even Etsy for $150 – $350. The fact that many of these rosaries which were carried into combat still exist is a testimony to their durability.
The WWI Battle Beads have a 100% Stainless Steel chain. Unlike with brass chains, stainless steel will not wear down to a brown color with use but is silver color throughout the bead material. It is also non-rusting, non-corrosive, and non-allergenic.
Stainless Steel chain is very strong as well. It will not kink or knot up, and doesn’t have pieces that can catch on things in your pocket. The chains are attached using double loop split rings instead of the standard jump rings, so there will be no lost Crucifix.
The Miraculous centerpiece and Pardon Crucifix are beautifully detailed Italian imports in a silver oxide finish, as only the Italians can do.
This rosary is approximately 21 inches in length but bunches up very compactly so may be carried easily. It comes with a FREE small Rugged Rosaries zipper pouch and small round tin for storage.
