This necklace is a unique and vintage 1970's puka, Kaua'i kahelelani & O'ahu sunrise shell design. The puka are vintage, the kahelelani & sunrise were added after.
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 very rough shapes and range in size, color and luster. The sunrise is very large and is a bright luminous yellow with just small areas of white and pink. The sunrise is set with an invisible puka shell bail. Just restrung and ready to wear.
Length is 15.50 inch and is a tight choker. Very bold piece. Different lengths, colors and styles are available. Contact Us to inquire about a custom order.
