For the people of Massachusetts, there is no beach getaway more famous than the island of Nantucket. This once quiet island was originally home to whaling fleets and made famous as the setting for the classic novel, Moby Dick. This nautical identity has helped to shape the island, as its historical architecture and beautiful landscapes have made it the posterchild for vintage New England seaport towns.

Whether you are one of the lucky few who can call Nantucket home or just a seasonal visitor, show your pride in the island with Nantucket inspired jewelry. There are tons of pieces made to remind people of the island, but some notable trends include the nantucket basket, airport abreviation "ACK," the island, and the inclusion of scrimshaw. The island theme makes them perfect for the beach or any other summer spot.
