• The Best Pink Sand Beaches

    The Best Pink Sand Beaches in the World (and how to capture them)

    Pink sand beaches aren’t just around every corner. The unicorn variety of beach, pink sand can make you feel like you’re in a fairytale. It’s the color of the sand that lifts your spirits and really makes for a memorable trip.
    Here are some of our favorite places to find luxurious pink sand.


    • Jobson's Cove, Bermuda: The cove is the place to be if you want to have a wedding in Bermuda. The exquisite pink sands make it one of the most visually appealing beaches on the island, meant for creating picture-perfect memories. Thinking about dropping a hint for a Bermuda wedding? Our classic Island Ring fits beautifully with pink sand, giving the wearer envy of beachcombers everywhere.


    • Boca Prins, Aruba: Nestled on the northeast coast of Aruba, Boca Prins is gently kissed by the trade winds the area is known for. It's more secluded than other beaches on the island, which makes it ideal for a romantic getaway. Surprise your partner with this whimsical yet elegant Heart-Shaped Beach Bangle commemorating the great time you had there (or will have).


    • Harbour Island, Bahamas: Right off the coast of Eleuthera Island, Harbour Island's pink sand beach dotted with quaint cottages and luxury resorts is one of the most legendary in the entire Caribbean. No Bahaman vacation is complete without a barefoot walk on the oceanfront. The Sand Jewel Heart-Shaped Necklace is just perfect for sharing the memories you've made on your dream vacation here.


    • Anegada Beach, British Virgin Islands: The British Virgin Islands are probably one of the best places to celebrate love and happiness -- the island is full of exquisite pink and white sand beaches and waters that will make you never want to go home. With this Rose Gold ID Bracelet, you can use up to two different kinds of sand and a custom message so you'll never forget the great time you had at Anegada Beach.

    If you’ve been too pink sand beaches and want to hold onto the memory forever, incorporate the experience into one of Dune Jewelry’s custom pieces. Dune's Sandbank™ holds some of the most popular wedding and vacation destinations around the world and that includes many pink sand beaches. There’s no better way to say “Happy Anniversary” or “Happy Birthday” or even “just because…”.

  • Get to know our custom jewelry makers: Dustin Bell


    You love Dune Jewelry so we know you'll love the team behind the name. We're so excited to have you get to know us better. Introducing Dustin Bell...


    Name (nicknames?)

    Dustin Bell, but I occasionally will be called D, DBell, Dman, Dusty (to my family in Kansas), Dennis (to some of our customers)



    What would you sing at Karaoke night?


    This is a tough one, but I really got to give a shout out to anything by Billy Joel or Bare Naked Ladies, my voice sits nicely with them. However, I will ALWAYS try to do Rainbow Connection and invite everyone in the bar up front to sit on stage with me. Always makes for a sweet moment in the middle of a loud and raucous event.


    What would you want as your superhero power?


    Telekinesis, it’s kind of multiple superhero powers all in one.


    Do you play an instrument?


    I studied vocal performance in college and have played guitar since I was 14… music has been a really important part of my life for as long as I can remember.


    Star Wars or Star Trek?


    Star Wars, 100% especially with the new films, they are just everything.


    Hike or bike?


    I was a mountain biker back home in Colorado, but there is no space for that out here in Boston. I still do love a good bike ride when I don’t fear getting hit by a car.


    Kindle or paperback book?


    When I’m home, paperback, hands down. When I’m traveling, though, my Kindle Paperwhite is always near.


    What three words describe you?


    Can I help?


    Do you have pets?



    My girlfriend and I are the proud parents of two white & orange fur-baby kitties as we call them. Peaches & Pinecone were adopted from Canton Cat Rescue and you can follow them on Instagram @PeachesAndPinecone … yes, I’m serious.


    What's the one thing you can't live without?


    Theatre, this is one of my educational backgrounds and I always tell people theater is my sanity.


    What's your 'death row' meal?


    My own recipe for mashed potatoes… I love them for the taste and the process it takes to make them.


    What kind of music do you listen to while you’re working?


    I try to keep it basic and sans too many lyrics I know, so a little classical, some movie soundtracks or when I’m doing creative work, I throw on my extensive musical theater collection.


    Whats your favorite piece of Dune Jewelry and why?


    I wear our Geometric Travel Tag almost every day inlaid with coal from the Titanic. Now, this is a bit of an insider secret, but yes, we have coal from the RMS Titanic and we’ll be releasing it later this year for ANY Dune piece as part of an expansion of our Sandbank™. I just love taking a bit of history with me anywhere I go.



    Geometric Travel Tag

    What is your favorite beach sand? Have you ever been there? Why do you love it?


    I’m fond of White Horse Beach in Plymouth, MA. My girlfriend’s family has been living on and going to that beach for 50+ years so it’s always full of the BEST memories.

    Finish your layered look by personalizing your necklaces with your sand or crushed element and you are ready to layer. Choose your sand for each necklace or pendant to reflect your favorite destinations, a place that represents a special memory or a destination that you cannot wait to visit. Express your story in each necklace and wear them together to tell an interesting story about yourself, your family or your friends.

    Layered styles look great as a tonal ombre effect. To achieve an ombre like effect select tonal colors, lighter and darker shades of the same color family - choose your sand to represent colors that inspire you.  With each layered necklace celebrate important milestones, vacations or special memories.

  • Farewell 2016…HELLO 2017!


    Shelly beach and blue sky.


    New relationships, collaborations and experiences made 2016 monumental.  It was such a special year for me because I was able to get out and meet new people and raise money for causes I believe in - all while making jewelry that I love and am so passionate about.  I look forward to continuing down the same path in 2017 with more exciting adventures and collaborations.  We had a record-breaking year here at Dune and I’m grateful for all of the travel enthusiasts who’ve made us their favorite jewelry choice.  I can’t say thank you enough.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!
