When you are feeling stressed out and need to think about something calming and special, what’s your “happy place?” Dune Jewelry can take you there every day.
For many people, it’s a special beach that has special meaning and memories to always bring that warm, happy feeling. The feeling of warm sand between your toes. The midnight stroll on the sand. The first kiss of lovers wrapped in a sandy embrace.
Imagine if you could keep that sandy beach with you and actually wear it!
Well actually now you can.
The Advice Sisters were offered a small piece of Dune Jewelry for review. Not surprisingly, there are ollections with different shapes and sizes, but we were particularly drawn to the shapes that were relevant to beaches such as sand dollars, starfish, coral, waves, turtles.
We choose the quintessential “sea” shape: the starfish. About 1,500 species of starfish occur on the seabed in all the world’s oceans, from the tropics to frigid polar waters
Our Starfish Earrings ($130.00) are stamped shiny 925 sterling silver and the starfish shaped pendants filled with sand are about 19mm in diameter (about the size of a large jelly bean. These beautiful earrings swing from simple, sterling silver ear wires and the earrings are made in the USA®.
Once we knew what shape we wanted, we had to choose the beach sand that would be enclosed within the starfish. While we knew that we could choose beautiful pink sand from Bermuda, or pure white sand from one of our favorite beaches in Anguilla, we choose sand from one of the most famous beaches in the world and our home-town beach: Coney Island.
Our sand wasn’t quite as beautiful as that from Rincon PR. It’s very dark brown, a bit darker than we remember it in real life, but the Brooklyn sand wasn’t a pristine white like the beaches in the Caribbean. It was always kind of dirty brown. And that’s the point: it might not be the prettiest sand on the planet, but it reminds us of days on that Brooklyn beach.
Remember Those Moments!
Anyone would enjoy the pretty designs of Dune Jewelry but it’s the joy of making it personal and meaningful with your special beach sand that makes it so unique. would make a very romantic gift for newlyweds to give each other after that beach honeymoon. While we see Dune Jewelry and the special sand selections as a super personalized and romantic gift idea, it’s also a nice gift to consider for holidays for those who have beach memories with family and friends or their children.
Dune Jewelry is Novel Gift Idea
If you are an armchair traveler that long to travel to exotic places, perhaps a beautiful beach in Bali, or Hawaii, but you have to save to get there, wearing sand from that special beach is a way to keep a little of that dream alive and wear it every day!
