A compliment of the two most coveted types of seashells in Hawaii is displayed in this traditional Hawaiian Kehelelani Shell necklace with large multi colored North Shore Sunrise Shell pendant. Kahelelani Shells are the rare shells made popular by the beautiful Leis made by the ladies of the Forbidden Island of Niihau. The tiny "Niihau Shells" are the rarest of shells, considered gems, and are the only shells that are insurable. This strand of Kahelelani shells include all the beautiful colors, from bright pink, to dark burgundy, yellow, speckled tan, light pink and beige. These shells have a lustrous gloss, which is a sure sign of the highest quality! A perfect North Shore Sunrise Shell was selected for its complimentary colors including yellows, pinks, burgundy, tan and with the very desirable green shade of color. A spectacular presentation of authentic Hawaiian seashell jewelry!
The necklace is 16 inches and is finished with Puka Shells and sterling silver clasp. The large Sunrise Shell centerpiece is 1 1/4 inch in size with a high & round dome, perfect wings, beautiful detail in its ribs, well formed bumpy knuckles and a growth ring ruffle at the scallop edges. A beautiful and special keepsake gift to be treasured by the whole family.
