5 Best Nautical Jewelry Gifts To Get When Visiting Cape Cod

Many people traveling to Cape Cod are searching for a nautical gift to remind themselves of the trip for months to come. On the other hand, some people need a souvenir for a family member who couldn’t come with them, a pet sitter, or a coworker who covers their shifts while they are on vacation. At Michael’s Custom Jewelers, we have perfect gifts for anyone who is fond of jewelry and would like to acquire a sea-themed memento.

This is a list of our five most popular nautical jewelry items bought as gifts. We have included different pieces (bracelets, rings, necklaces, etc) to accommodate everyone. Wearing various jewelry items is often a matter of habit or convenience, and we carry jewelry that incorporates nautical symbols in different ways, making them comfortable to wear year-round.

They are made on Cape Cod. Beachball Bracelets are your #1 choice

Beachball Bracelets are wildly popular on Cape Cod among both locals and tourists. You’ll literally see so many of them on people’s wrists as you walk down Commercial Street in the summertime. They take many forms and shapes, and they come in different sizes. These bracelets are worn by men, women, and children alike. We also carry them in several different metal choices - 14k gold, 14k rose gold, and 925 silver - to match the rest of your jewelry.

If you’re shopping for someone who doesn’t wear bracelets at all, there are earrings, necklaces, and rings in Cape Cod style. Their easily recognizable design centers around a beach ball symbol. This jewelry can be worn casually or on a night out, and it will match any outfit thanks to its modern and sophisticated form.

We have posted a comprehensive sizing guide to help you pick the right size as our Cape Cod-made bangle bracelets are sized, including children’s sizes. If you are not sure, simply drop by the store, and our associates will be happy to help you choose the right one.

Whale Tail’s lucky, and it wasn’t just a fluke!

People love going whale watching. It’s one of the most exhilarating experiences that people have when traveling to Provincetown. No wonder they want to commemorate the trip by getting a whale-shaped piece of jewelry.

The most popular designs feature a whale’s tail, otherwise known as a fluke. They come in many different shapes, just like the tails of real whales depending on their species.

We usually have a wide selection of whale tail necklaces and earrings that are made in small batches for every season. And if you’re looking to purchase a whale-themed piece of jewelry online, we offer Whale Tail bangle bracelets, some made of sterling silver and some with a Rhodium gold-coated fluke. We also carry LOLA statement pendants in various colors and sizes.

Wave jewelry to remember the rush of water and sand between your toes

A wave symbol is very popular among teenagers and young adults. At Michael’s Custom Jewelers, we typically carry necklaces in small and large sizes, as well as matching earrings and rings. They are mostly available during the season while supply lasts. The necklace chains can be customized for you; we offer a choice between 16”, 18”, and 20” without a change in price.

Starfishes and Shells to carry the beach with you wherever you go

Nothing reminds one of a beach like a beautiful seashell that they picked up during their travels. No such luck this year? No worries, we have many different jewelry pieces that will allow you to bring your favorite shell shape with you no matter how far from Cape Cod you may be.

We carry sand dollar jewelry and starfish jewelry. During the season, the store may have some silver scallop bracelets and pendants in sterling silver and 14k gold - please call 508-487-0708 to check for availability.  

Cape Cod map to always remember to come back

The map of Cape Cod has a truly unique shape. It looks great when incorporated into jewelry. Cape Cod map necklace tends to be the most commonly requested item, and we have several options to choose from.

If you like a minimalist piece that can be worn at all times, a cutout map necklace may be the right piece for you. We also carry a gold-filled version

And if you’d like a splash of color, LOLA Cape Cod map pendants offer several versions of the map in a few different sizes. These pendants can be stacked together or worn by themselves. Chains for LOLA pendants need to be purchased separately.

Nautical jewelry makes great gifts. Sterling silver and 14k pieces last a long time, and they will continue reminding you of your Cape Cod trip when summer is long gone.

So come see us in our Provincetown store at 304 Commercial Street. We carry a wide selection of silver and gold jewelry, gemstones, and unique nautical pieces to add to your collection.
