Moving Life Preserver on a Rope Necklace

Regular price $170

This kinetic nautical necklace has a sterling silver life preserver charm that moves along a twisted wire bar designed to look like rope. Inspired by the shapes of the classic round ring buoy, this symbolic lifesaver is a fun and playful piece from a collection of nautical jewelry.

Your best friend is always there for you. She'd get on a plane and fly four states to throw you a surprise party. She'd actually answer her phone if you called in the middle of the night needing to chat. She'd save the day at your housewarming by sneaking out to get more ice so you could enjoy the gathering.

She's your life preserver.

Let her know how much you appreciate all the ways she goes above and beyond by giving her a shiny reminder of how you'd just be flailing around without her - and you're grateful for it!

The pieces in our collections are primarily made to order. This means we create each piece specifically for you when your order is placed. We intentionally keep limited stock because when we make our jewelry we want to know that its next home will be with you, being worn and loved, not sitting in a box still waiting for its moment to shine. This process typically takes 1-2 weeks before shipment, unless otherwise noted.

Another benefit to creating our pieces this way is that it allows us to work with you to customize elements of a design if necessary. Don't see the size option you need? Just contact us with any questions you have about measurements or fit before you place your order. We want you to feel confident that you're receiving the perfect item.

Need something by a specific date? Just ask and we'll let you know if we can make it happen!
