One of my favorite souvenirs I like to collect while traveling is jewelry. I love finding pieces that evoke the energy of the place I am traveling to. These pieces of jewelry serve as a reminder of my travel memories each time I wear them. That is why a ring from Dune Jewelry was the perfect piece to add to my collection.

My Dune Jewelry Story
I have always been a beach girl. The sand and sea beckons me. Yet, there are a few beaches that stand out to me above the rest. These beaches hold memories that I will cherish forever. And there was no better way to capture these memories than with a piece of jewelry I can wear every day. I choose the Stacker Ring Trio because they are on trend and so delicate that I can wear them daily. Also the Stacker Ring Trio allowed me to choose three different sands (more sand, more memories). Now every time I see these rings, I will be reminded of the beach each sand is from.
Assateague Island, Maryland
My earliest and fondest beach memories are from trips with my family. For me, nothing will beat our times spent exploring various beaches along the Atlantic Coast of the United States. Over the years, we have walk sandy shores of beaches from Massachusetts to Florida. Assateague Island in Maryland is especially memorable. Assateague Island is a national park that is home to over 300 wild ponies. The image of the wild ponies running along the pristine white beach was one of the most enchanting things I have ever seen.
Magens Bay, St. Thomas, USVI
When I saw images of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, I never thought I would actually step foot in that water. Thus when an opportunity to cruise the Caribbean arose for my Spring Break, I booked the first flight to San Juan. The first port our cruise ship stopped at was St. Thomas in the USVI. Naturally we headed to the beach upon embarking. We ended up at Magens Bay Beach which is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I have never seen water so clear and breathtakingly blue before.
Monterosso al Mare, Cinque Terre, Italy
I spent a couple weeks in the Italian Riviera, exploring the sea side towns along the coast. These beaches were unlike any I had ever visited. The coast ranged from sandy shored to pebble beaches. The most spectacular of all the places I visited was Cinque Terre. Seeing Cinque Terre was one of those moments of disbelief. The beach washed up on the shores of these fishing villages and the shoreline ran along the rugged coast of the Ligurian Sea.
