Set sail on a jewel of a cruise! This New England jaunt will take you to beautiful seaside villages and stunning locales adorned with the finest examples of Colonial and Victorian architecture. As you island and coastline hop, you will acquire a stunning custom-designed addition to your jewelry collection.
Your adventure begins in beautiful Nantucket. As you stroll along the yacht-lined wharves and down the cobblestoned streets of this tiny, enchanting island, you’ll find plenty of charming, high-end boutiques and restaurants to duck into amid the steepled churches and other places of interest. One memorable stop will be The Vault, the couture jewelry store of Katherine Jetter. Katherine is an internationally recognized couture jeweler and gemologist carried in Neiman Marcus, Marissa Collections and other high-end boutiques around the world. Here, you will collaborate with her on a custom piece and then it’s off to the exclusive Westmoor Club for a private luncheon and informational lecture on rare, colored gemstones and their investment value. Topics will include Paraiba Tourmalines from Brazil and Mozambique; Argyle Pink Diamonds from Australia; South Sea and Tahitian Pearls; and Spinels and Sapphires from Burma.
Your cruise begins when you choose from several destinations in the region. Northwest of Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard beckons with its harbor towns and lighthouses, sandy beaches and farmland. You’ll want to browse and shop in Edgartown as you enjoy its pristine harbor views and stately Greek revival houses dating back to the whaling era of the early 19th-century. Maybe you’ll choose to hit the beaches and boutiques of Vineyard Haven, bike around the “gingerbread” houses and Flying Horses carousel of Oak Bluffs or catch a sunset in Menemsha.
Your destination options on this get-away include Newport, Rhode Island, known for the Gilded Age mansions lining Bellevue Avenue. Built in 1895, the palatial summer home of the Vanderbilts, The Breakers, with its ornate artwork and gardens, is perhaps the most famous. Tour the many magnificent homes that are now museums.
Sag Harbor on Long Island’s South Fork offers irresistible beaches and meticulous cuisine. This beachy New York destination with its dramatic dunes, shingled windmills, and famous light has attracted artists for generations. Notables from Hollywood stars to Jackson Pollock to Winslow Homer have summered there; now it’s your turn.
But, truly, the best part of this beautiful New England cruise will be the times spent surrounded exclusively by dear friends and the deep blue sea.
If this four-day getaway sounds like gem of an opportunity… bid now before it sails off into the sunset!
