Kauai Kahelelani Shells Bracelet Review and Giveaway


    Quality Multicolor Kahelelani Shell Herring Bone Bracelet


If you have ever been to Kauai, Hawaii then you know how stunning this "garden island" is.  Many beaches are pristine with glittering shells and with treasures washed on it's shores.  
Kauai Shells and More is a business from Kaapa that strives to keep Kauai traditions alive. They use the "natural beauty that the island provides to create adornments that last generations." Vial of Rare Kahelelani Shells
The shells used in their bracelets are
The Kahelelani Shells.
They "are only found in a small region of the Pacific. Most of them wash up on Niihau, the Forbidden Island, but we do get some on only a few beaches here on Kauai. They are a very special shell in that they are the ONLY shell in the world that is classified as a gem, and can be insured as one. At one time they were actually worth more per ounce than gold! This ancient art of using the shells to create adornments has been practiced by the Hawaiians since their arrival to the islands. They used to use them as currency and declared for a period of time that only the royalty or "Ali'i" could wear them. Today only a handful of people keep this tradition alive, making these already rare and sought after shells even more valuable."
There is something very raw, delicate, and elegant about all of the jewelry found at Kauai Shells and More. When I first tried on the Multicolor Herring Bone Kahelelani Bracelet (pictured above) I just loved how the colors of the shells blended so naturally with my skin color. It can be worn with anything since the colors are so natural. I have been wearing mine for the past 3 days and like how versatile it is. The Hawaiian shells are so tiny that it's very comfortable to keep on all day long. My bracelet came in the mail packaged beautifully with a little bag of handpicked beach glass from Kauai as well. It's personal touches like this that make the experience special.

I can't even fathom how painstakingly long it takes this artist to string the shells. This is why I am shocked how little they charge at their shop. You can get some awesome deals for these rare shells and lovely pieces at Kauai Shells and More!
