Details

Born from the history of the invincible Dutch Navy, the legend has it that sailors would tattoo a pig and hen on their feet in hopes that the ocean would carry them to safety in case of shipwreck, just as it did the pigs and hens in their cages. The Gorgeous George bracelet continues this legacy, handmade in Amsterdam of authentic ship rope it serves as a daily reminder to hold fast. 

  • 11mm wide ship rope
  • Shackle closure 

For sizing please see size guide, use a tape measure to measure your wrist size - the wrist size is not the length of the bracelet, they are designed to fit comfortably based on your measurements. 

Pig & Hen

In the early 1600s, Dutch explorers set sail to unknown parts of the world, eventually boasting the largest naval fleet on Earth. With some serious sea legs, they discovered new lands and ways of life – all the while overcoming oceans of obstacles along the way.To protect themselves from bad luck, mariners inked tattoos of a pig and a hen on their feet because crates of pigs and hens were oftentimes the only items left floating after a shipwreck. The sailors believed a pig and hen tattoo would help them not only survive the strongest of storms, but also allow them to float back safely to their beloved homeland
