The Wai Momi Necklace gets its name from the famous bay found on the south side of Oahu. This bay was once renowned for its wealth of pearl producing oysters and was known by ancient Hawaiian as "Wai Momi," which translates to "water of pearls." We of course know it for different reasons and by a slightly different name: Pearl Harbor.

The Wai Momi Necklace design is ALL about the gorgeous center pearl. And this beautiful, iridescent white Edison Pearl could not be more lovely.

I paired this pearl with a collection of smaller, delicate white pukas. They range in hue from warm to cool and perfectly highlight the natural tones of the pearl. These two dozen shells were lovingly (and painstakingly) selected to created a nearly perfect transition from large to small. So simple. So natural. So perfect.

I look forward to sharing this piece with someone who loves the simple pleasures and simple treasures that the ocean shares with us. 

This princess style necklace sits delicately around the collar bone and is a flattering length for all shapes, sizes and necklines. It is also possible to wear this necklace at a shorter length to accommodate a higher neckline. Play around with the closure or message me for ideas ;)

The shells are strung on hand twisted 4 ply rope (made from flat waxed polyester thread) in a medium brown shade of almond.

The secure and easy to use toggle closure is made with a sliding pearl and a puka. Just slide the pearl to open or close the loop and slip the puka in or out.

If you decide to wear your necklace at a shorter length, recenter your pukas by moving them one by one along the cord. The outside pukas are meant to hold their place and are drilled with a smaller hole. Therefore they will be the most "stubborn" to move. Apply firm pressure to move them slowly. Don't worry, the necklace is made to handle the abuse!
