Sailor's Shackle 8mm Latching Bracelet
The Sailor's Shackle is a symbol of security in the nautical and sailing community. This strong link, known as a gyve or shackle, is used to secure the bow of a ship to the anchor-line. Brian Bishop first rendered this Sailor's Shackle in 1975.
To measure your wrist correctly, wrap an ordinary piece of string comfortably around your wrist bone. Mark the point where the edges meet. This measurement (in inches) is your wrist size. If you would like your bracelet to have a snug fit, use your wrist measurement for your bracelet size. If you would like your bracelet to have a more loose fit, please add 1/4 inch to your wrist size.
