In our little slice of St. Augustine paradise, the warmth and welcome of summer is never far away. Even in the dead of winter, we find beautiful ways to keep that feel of sunshine and sand close at hand. Now, you can pass that feeling along to those you love this holiday season with these gorgeous pieces from Carter’s Jewelry. Owner Jeanie Carter calls this collection, “A Walk on the Beach You Can Wear,” and it’s not hard to see why. This nautical jewelry is playful but elegant, ranging from sterling silver and crystals to gold and diamonds. Whether you want to send a little sunshine to a far away friend, give a local loved one a slice of summer year round, or just treat yourself to something beautiful and unique, this collection has something for everyone.
PALM TREE NECKLACE – $249
Sterling silver encrusted with crystals, this delicate palm tree piece comes with an adjustable chain. Its simple but elegant design means that it can perfectly compliment any outfit and any occasion. And its rhodium plating will prevent tarnishing, so it’s easy for everyday wear!
FLIP FLOP PENDANT – $775
Who doesn’t love a piece with a good story behind it? A former dentist-turned-jewelry designer, Dr. Kovel creates pieces that encourage preservation and protection, inspired by the beauty and fragility of the natural world. This sterling silver pendant is just over 2 inches with 14k gold plating as well as mother of pearl and created opal inlays.
TURTLE SLIDE – $1975
Now this is a statement piece that we can’t get enough of. Large and unique, this 14k yellow gold, diamond-cut turtle slide is designed for a large rope or omega chain. It’s the perfect gift for someone who wants to stand out in the most beautiful way.
SAPPHIRE CONCH – $1250
“Wow” is just about all we can say. Radiant and stunning, this multi color sapphire conch is 14k yellow gold-encrusted with all natural sapphires in a variety of orange, yellow, and red hues. It’s equal parts understated and dazzling with the ombré shades of the sapphires blending seamlessly into the sparkling yellow gold.
