The kahelelani are a tan/pink and make up the loop part of the button clasp. The puka were bought at an estate with many other pieces of Hawaiian jewelry. They are graduated and range in size, color and luster. The clap is a purple puka and there is one bright blue accent shell as well. Just restrung and ready to wear.
