Reef Knot Earrings Inspiration

Reef Knots used in sailing were the inspiration behind the Reef Knot Earrings by Black Matter. Part of the very popular Nautical Collection, reef knots are a stylish seafaring symbol and are loved by people with a connection to the ocean.

Reef knots are an ancient binding knot used to secure ropes around an object. The knot is formed by tying a left-handed overhand knot and then a right-handed overhand knot, or vice versa.

The Reef Knot earrings by Black Matter are crafted from start to finish in New Zealand and are made with sterling silver (or gold upon request).
