Ocean Inspired Fashion and Jewelry to Wear on a Cruise
One of my favorite pieces of jewelry I ever had, was a starfish pendant in white gold with diamonds. I got it on a vacation in Florida a few years ago, and wore it every summer and on every beach vacation.
Sadly, I’ve since lost it and I’m always looking out to find a replacement piece that I love just as much.
There’s just something about the starfish that I find inspiring and hopeful, but in truth, I LOVE everything that reminds me of the beach and the ocean. The waves, the sand, the palm trees, the boats and cruise ships, and everything nautical.
If you love the beach and cruising, this ocean inspired jewelry will be perfect both on vacation and for every day!
