Sailor and sea pendants

Where did the nautical style come from?

The nautical style probably dates back to the 19th century, from the portrait of young Edward VII in a sailor's outfit. Probably this picture inspired many English mothers to make their children similar clothes. However, it was not until the first half of the 20th century that a real trend emerged. It was started by Coco Chanel, which was inspired by fishermen's clothes that are comfortable and pleasant to the touch. Contrasting colors and stripes seemed elegant to the designer in their simplicity, and so the nautical style began to conquer our hearts. Sailor outfits quickly fell in love with, among others Picasso, Hemingway, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and Audrey Hepburn.

How to reflect the nautical style in jewelry?

The first thing that comes to mind are the characteristic colors in the marina style: white, navy blue and red. It is in these colors that we most often find jewelery souvenirs from the seaside. These colors are expressive at the same time, but also match most simple, everyday stylizations.

This style is more directly reflected in the sailor's pendants. They are the perfect accessories for summer bracelets. Pendants, anchors, rudders, sailboats, and wind roses are among the most common choices. They are also great gift ideas for sailing enthusiasts. Less obvious pendants are fish, octopus, turtles, or crabs. In recent years, both natural and artificial shells, such as metal pendants, have gained enormous popularity.
