Sunrise Shells Jewelry Designs North Shore Oahu, Hawaii
Monica's Sunrise Shells of the North Shore, Oahu, Hawaii
Welcome to the site of the most beautiful Sunrise Shells of Hawaii!
Once only worn by Hawaiian Royalty of days past, the rare Hawaiian Sunrise Shell, or Langford's Pecten, is a deep water member of the scallop family and lives at depths in excess of 150' deep. It is so named because it is most often found in the beach or in the surf at first light, or sunrise, and the shells coloration displays the many vivid colors seen in the brilliant Hawaiian sunrises.
In Hawaiian legend it is said that "To find a rare Sunrise Shell is a blessing, and to wear one shows your Aloha".
Always admired, always unique, and only from the Hawaiian Islands, Sunrise Shell jewelry is truly a beloved treasure from the deep blue Pacific ocean.
I humbly offer this beautiful Hawaiian North Shore Sunrise Shell jewelry designed and created "one piece at a time" in Haleiwa, Hawaii. Hand crafted natural beach jewelry in unique designs for all ages and for all tastes - from authentic Hawaiian style to elegant "statement pieces" and Bridal jewelry designs, the stunning North Shore Sunrise Shell will capture your heart, stir your imagination, and honor you with many sincere compliments.
