I have so many wonderful memories that involve the beach. I’ve loved the beach since I was a little girl From the Jersey shore to the many tropical beaches I’ve had the pleasure of visiting, the beach holds a special place in my heart. When I was younger I’d plant myself in a comfy chair and read for hours, and then later I’d take a nap under the umbrella. Now there’s not much time for relaxing at the beach. Instead I love watching my kids roam and play in the sand and surf.
Of all the beaches in all the world, the one that’s most special to me is St. Thomas. When I was pregnant with Gia, my husband and I went to St. Thomas on our babymoon. We relaxed, ate like champs and spent hours on the gorgeous beach.
Then in 2013 we went back with my family. It felt like we came full circle–being there with Gia who was in my belly the last time we were there. Then, we got an amazing surprise that connected us and our little family to St. Thomas forever. Toward the end of the trip I started to suspect that I was pregnant. Upon our return I did, in fact, find out I was expecting (you can read all about that here.)
Now I can keep a tiny piece of St. Thomas with me all the time with these gorgeous Regatta Stud earrings from Dune Jewelry. These gorgeous sterling silver earrings are filled with sand from St. Thomas! The rope detail adds the perfect nautical touch to these beauties. Dune Jewelry is a full collection of jewelry made with beach sand from around the world. You get to choose the type of jewelry — bangle bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces and even accessories –and where the sand is from. Dune has sandbanks all over the world so you can be sure you’ll be able to create the perfect piece of jewelry to represent your most special beach memories.
The Regatta Stud Earrings have quickly become my favorite earrings. They’re the perfect size for everyday wear and they look great whether I’m dressed down or a little bit dressed up. And the best part is that every time someone compliments them (which happens all.the.time!) I get to relive all the amazing memories we made in St. Thomas.
