I have never seen or heard of a fake rosary. There are little rosaries that are called chaplets for praying to patron saints.

It is used the same as a rosary, for praying to a patron saint for help or to meditate in prayer to that saint. Chaplets exist for Saints like St. Patrick, St. Teresa, Divine Mercy, St. Michael, etc. You can buy them at most religious stores.
