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 on 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".
