Hold Fast Anchor Ring

Hold Fast Anchor Ring


In years past, Sailors would get the phrase "HOLD FAST" tattooed across their fingers. It was a reminder to stay vigilant in gripping the rigging of the ship. Without grasping the ropes firmly, a sailor could let a ship get off course or be himself swept  overboard by wind or wave.
 
 
 
 
A symbol of strength - the anchor holds down ships even in the stormiest of weather. A heart is engraved around the anchor with two nautical stars on the face of the ring. "Hold Fast" is engraved on the sides. 
 
The face measures approximately 1/4 x 1/4 inch.
