The Lifesaver Earrings made in solid sterling silver with wrapped knot details to mimic the ropes on a Life Ring. A Life Ring has been used for centuries as a water safety device and has evolved many times. A round ring with a rope knot at four sections however, is still widely recognized as the most common design. This design is currently available in solid silver or with 14k gold plated knots. Other metals and finishes are always available, message me for custom options and a quote. All HKM Jewelry pieces are properly hallmarked for metal type and stamped for authenticity.
