This beautiful gemstone rosary bracelet features wooden round beads as the paters and Picture Jasper and Dalmation Jasper beads as the aves. Each of our stretch and wrap rosary bracelets is a full rosary.  Small rosary bracelets do not include the first three aves. Each bracelet also includes a “bookmark” crucifix medal.  This medal is moveable and can help you keep track of where you are at in your rosary as you pray throughout your day.

Each bracelet is strung on durable elastic making it easy to stretch and wrap around your wrist without fear of snapping it.

This rosary bracelet is named after St. Maximilian Kolbe. He was born in January 1894 and named Raymund Kolbe. When he was twelve years old, he had a vision of Mary. He said about it, “That night I asked the Mother of God what was to become of me. Then she came to me holding two crowns, one white, the other red. She asked me if I was willing to accept either of these crowns. The white one meant that I should persevere in purity, and the red that I should become a martyr. I said that I would accept them both."

Just one year after that when he was thirteen years old, he went with his brother Francis to join the Conventual Franciscans. Here he received the name Maximilian. As a religious, he earned two doctorates from the Pontifical Gregorian University. His doctorates were in philosophy and theology.

He became a priest in 1918. His primary work included promotion of Mary throughout Poland. He also started two monasteries, one in India and the other in Japan.

Eventually, his health required him to return to Poland. When World War II began, he opened a temporary hospital to help those in need.  He also provided shelter to refugees including thousands of Jews. His monastary also published many anti-Nazi literature. 

In 1941, Maximilian was arrested by the Gestapo and taken to the Pawiak prison. Shortly after that, he was moved to Auschwitz. As a priest, Maximilian was harassed and abused severely in the camp. After two months in Auschwitz, he volunteered to take the place of a man who was sentenced to death. This man had been chosen randomly with others simply to die as a warning to the other prisoners. The man had a family and Maximilian took his place. 

Maximilian died on August 14, 1941. He was canonized by John Paul II in October 1982. John Paul II declared him to be a martyr.

St. Maximilian Kolbe, pray for us!

I love my rosary bracelet. It has the perfect colored beads in it so you can wear it with anything. Sweatpants included. A perfect way to always have a rosary on you.

Love it

I really enjoy this bracelet, have worn it many times already and am even wearing it as I type this review. The only down-side for me is that I have a very small wrist and even the medium is a bit too large but not large enough to make another twist. I understand that the beads in this design do not allow for it to be smaller, so I make do! Thank you for your beautiful work!

Happy Camper!

I don’t know why I waited so long to buy the Kolbe stretch bracelet! I figured it could not possibly be prettier than the other bracelet I had purchased from Chews Life - but it is SO BEAUTIFUL!!! I’ve been wearing it every day - the colors are perfect and I love the wood decade beads. Both bracelets have been even prettier in person than on the website. If you think it looks nice, it will be even more amazing once you receive it!

Best Thing I’ve Ever Bought!

I absolutely love my rosary bracelet! I had it blessed and I wear it every day. It has helped me pray my rosary more often. I love the moveable Crucifix that helps me mark where I’ve left off if I can’t pray the entire rosary in one sitting. It’s truly been a major help to my prayer life! I’ve purchased several now, and given them as gifts!

Just what I needed!

This is my second rosary bracelet I've gotten from ChewsLife. I decided to get the Kolbe because I needed something more toned down that I could wear in uniform and this exceeded all my expectations. It's simple and neutral, but so very beautiful. Love having my rosary easily available all day but also be a gorgeous piece of jewelry! The quality is amazing like all ChewsLife products.
