Wear your travels, special places, and memories.

Dune Jewelry is The Original Beach Sand Jewelry Company.® It launched as a one-person kitchen table business and has grown exponentially on the premise that “jewelry’s value lies not only on its beauty but in its sentimental worth.”

Live For The Moment, Then Take It With You.

Dune categorizes their patented, hand-crafted creations as Experiential Jewelry.® By crafting jewelry using a small part of a special place, you can create a custom piece of jewelry from your adventures or your most cherished memories.


Take Traverse City with you, or a piece of the National Lakeshore, or the romantic place you honeymooned. Dune has a bank of beaches from around the globe, or submit your own sand.
