Harken T2 carbon blocks are essential bits of kit on board the fastest and most sophisticated racing yachts in the world.
And for those wanting to admire a T2 block all day long you can have it in miniature around your wrist.
The T2 bracelet has now been unveiled as the latest addition to the C’est la Vie Jewellery range which imitates sophisticated yacht fittings in intricate using silver and gold.
Just like onboard a yacht, the miniature T2 is lashed or spliced through the centre of the block, using delicate yet long-life 2mm dyneema cord, making a perfect high-tech bracelet.
The T2 bracelet is a cool accessory for every pro, weekend sailor and shoreside supporter. It’s an elegant statement for the girls and a cool accessory for the guys. Whether you are a sailor or not, the T2 bracelet is completely original, timeless and classic, representing a legacy of grand prix yachting.
The tiny, yet perfectly replicated Harken T2 block is just 11mm in diameter, and is available in solid 925 silver or solid 9ct gold.
There is a choice of two colours for the cord, black and red, which is secured with an adjustable sliding knot fastener.
The T2 bracelet is part of a stunning collection of jewellery, handmade at C’est La Vie’s studio in the heart of the UK’s beautiful New Forest on the water’s edge.
Jeweller and accomplished sailor Cathy Ash-Vie follows her vision of giving every owner a unique, personal treasure that will last a lifetime.
Cathy, who is both silversmith and goldsmith, has re-defined the nautical style in jewellery, inspired by the environment around her.
The T2 block is designed precisely for having rope tied or spliced through its load bearing centre on a grand prix sailing yacht, so it’s just perfect for a wrist cord.
C’est La Vie has a catalogue of blocks, shackles, and other nautical miniatures, all in stunning detail.
Wear the T2 on a necklace too – it looks fabulous with an 18″/45cm sterling silver, or 14ct gold rope chain.
