At first glance, "The Ashley Book of Knots," doesn't read like a romance. The 1944 volume is an illustrated reference manual featuring 2,000 unique knots, their usage and histories. It's a labor of love, maybe, but not your typical love story. Unless you consider what a knot really is: an organized tangle of ropes, separate, yet nevertheless inseparable, and in the end, stronger for it. Think about it that way and suddenly it sounds much more romantic.
You won't find our Etorno Earrings anywhere in the book (we checked). But that's because they weren't designed to lasso a mustang, secure a mizzen, or tie down a mainsail. They were designed for a higher purpose: to bind two hearts together as one. These are the kind of knots that never come undone.
These Etorno Earrings are not textbook "lover's knots" in their execution — but they share the spirit. Each strand of the knot is flexible enough to be intertwined alongside the other and seems to go on for an eternity. Crafted in Italy of fine gold-finished .925 sterling silver, each of the Etorno Earrings secures with a post back. What better way to represent the strength, flexibility and endurance of your own true love?
