In my mind, there are few things that are more authentically Hawaiian than the Sunrise Shell. This endemic shell comes in every color of the sunrise (and sunset) - each one unique and a true ocean treasure. They live in deep waters and rarely wash ashore intact. To find a sunrise shell is pure magic, as it is to wear one around your neck.
For this design, each pristine sunrise shell has been paired with an equally unique, surf polished "puka" (or more precisely, cone top), vibrant sea glass nugget or collection of miniature fresh water pearls. Each combination is strung on hand twisted 4 ply rope cord which is durable and ocean (water) friendly.
The necklaces included in this listing are finished at 18 inches ("classic princess length"). This measurement is for the cord portion only, meaning that the drop of the shell will add additional length (approximately one inch) like a charm would length to a chain. The toggle closure is secure and easy to use. Slide the small pearl up and down to open or close the toggle loop and slip the second pearl in or out.
This is such a special way to wear a piece of Hawaii every day of the year. Dress this necklace up, dress it down, take it to the beach - this style is both beachy and sophisticated, elegant and organic.
To you. From me.
