About the Materials…
In case you were wondering, the gold that is used in Hawaii Jewel jewelry is not a vermeil or plating. 1/20th of its weight is actually 14 Karat Gold. This means that Hawaii Jewel Gold jewelry will not change color, wear off or tarnish! Gold is an amazing metal and costs me twice as much than silver. So, remember, when ordering Hawaii Jewel gold products, THE PRICES ARE A DEAL!
We went into Hanalei to the Paddler and found your jewelry. I bought 2 bracelets and a ring. I love them! I bought my other pieces at the Art House and the Palm Palm. I have 2 necklaces, 2 earring sets, 4 rings, and 2 bracelets so I should be good for a while. I would still like a pinky ring so I will make an online order with you when I get some money saved up. :)
Next time we come to Kauai I will try and meet up with you to see if you have some new jewelry that is not on your website. I was lucky to find the leaf necklace and had the Art House order the matching earrings. You are a Great Artist!
14 Karat Gold Filled
14/20 (or 1/20th 14Karat) gold-filled, is made by heat and pressure bonding gold to a brass core. The 1/20 notation refers to the ratio of the 14 Karat gold layer to the brass layer by weight, which is 5%. The exterior of the jewelry will be solid gold. It is a superior product to gold plate as it contains much more gold and will not tarnish like gold-plated jewelry. 14 KGF is low maintenance, easy to care for and simple to keep clean.

.930 Argentium Sterling Silver Jewelry
For the silver jewelry, I have upgraded from sterling silver to Argentium Silver. While it costs me a bit more for Argentium Silver over Sterling Silver, the quality is certainly worth it. Argentium has more silver in it than sterling silver does! At Hawaii Jewel you get Argentium Silver for the price of Sterling Silver.
Argentium means quality:
Purer… Argentium sets new purity standards for silver. Argentium is always purer than traditional sterling silver. Sterling Silver has a small percentage of copper in it, which is what causes it to change color (oxidize/react to air). Argentium Silver does not have any copper in it. Argentium Silver is much less likely to react to air and tarnish like Sterling Silver. Hawaii jewel uses 100% Argentium Silver for all hand hammered and hand crafted pieces, and Sterling Silver for all chains. View Hawaii Jewel Silver Jewelry here.
Brighter… Argentium is brighter than platinum, white gold and traditional sterling silver. It is the whitest of them all.
Longer lasting shine… Argentium is low maintenance, easy to care for and simple to keep clean
Responsible and Ethical… Argentium helps the preservation of our natural environment and to conserve natural resources. It is certified that Argentium is produced using only RECYCLED SILVER!

.925 Sterling Silver
The definition of Sterling Silver is based on the British Sterling Standard. To qualify as Sterling, metal must contain a minimum of 92.5% pure silver. The remaining 7.5% is usually Copper. Copper adds strength to the metal. Our sterling maintains the highest standards. At Hawaii Jewel, all chains are Sterling Silver. View Hawaii Jewel Silver Jewelry here.
All crystals used at Hawaii Jewel are genuine Swarovski Crystals from Austria. View Hawaii Jewel Swarovski Crystal Jewelry here.

Custom Size and Fit from Hawaii Jewel…
I am passionate about comfortable and properly fitted jewelry. I love wearing bracelets that don’t hang down my hand, rings that don’t get in the way, and earrings that are so light, I forget that I have them on. I keep these principles in mind when creating each piece of jewelry. If you are particular as well, need a variation, or would like to discuss any piece in more detail, PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE ORDERING, so together we can make a CUSTOM FIT!
