Our Monkey Fist earrings are the earrings you've been waiting for! The classic symbol of New England's seafaring heritage, they add a sophisticated maritime accent. Cast in sterling silver. They arrive packaged in our signature vintage chart lined tins.
Monkey Fist knots were originally tied around a weighted object and used as the end of a heaving line on sailing ships. The weighted knot would allow the sailors to send a messanger line from ship to ship or ship to shore attached to a heavier mooring or dock line.
