shackle jewelry by Seawear

Until you have trusted your life and boat to a simple shackle, you will not understand the significance a person of the sea places on this simple device. If a person gives a piece of shackle jewelry, it is more than token of security, it is a trust and a bond that runs deep.

If you are looking for a reason to give a pair to yourself, legend has it that the reason so many seafaring men wore an earring was 'wearing a plain gold earring will protect you from drowning and evil spirits.'

In some circles, you weren't allowed to wear an earring until rounding Cape Horn... me on the other hand am never sure if it is shackle or shackel!

There are more on the bracelet page as well.
