Figure 8 Knot Bangle. Brass-Based and 14k Rose Gold-Plated with Natural Fresh Water Pearls. The Bangle is Approximately 60mm (2.4in) wide; the Opening 31mm (1.2in). This elegant bangle found its inspiration from the figure eight knot that weaves into itself to create a complex and unique pattern. The figure eight knot is a type of stopper knot. It is very important in both sailing and rock climbing as a method of retention. The Figure 8 Knot designs in the RUBAN Collection are made to celebrate the fascinating combination of beauty and practicality. This bangle is beautifully rose gold-plated and carefully polished to perfection. Two delicate natural pearls sit quietly at the tips to accentuate and complete the design.
