Now that Memorial Day Weekend has come and gone (AKA, the official start to summer), you can start the countdown until your feet are in the sand, enjoying the perfect New England getaway with friends, family or your significant other. It’s time to take a break from the bustling Boston area and reward yourself with some much needed fun in the sun.

And while vacations are meant for relaxation without a care in the world, it’s still important to have the perfect Nantucket attire for your beach days, evening outings and social media posts. You want to embody that “summer in New England” vibe, complete with seer sucker stripes and the fashion jewelry to go along with pastel colors and the bronze glow you’ll be sporting after a day at the beach.

Long’s is here to help complete your beachy Nantucket look with some unique, versatile pieces of jewelry that will last you way longer than the trendy romper you bought for the summer. Start with these five, and by all means, let us know if you’re looking for more.

This Marco Bicego Lunaria necklace is 18k Yellow Gold with beautiful, Black Mother of Pearl details that give your out a nautical vibe and can be repurposed in so many ways.

Aside from the fact this piece matches perfectly with the Marco Bicego Lunaria necklace, a bold bracelet is a way to ensure people are locking eyes with your look as you sign a bar tab or walk through the sand-dusted streets.

This bracelet lays flat against your wrist, so it’s not cumbersome, but rather a beautiful statement complementary to any beachy look you can imagine. And if you’re looking for something even more understated, try the Marco Bicego Jaipur White Gold Diamond link bracelet.
