CARE
Please store your jewelry in a cool, dry place, ideally in anti-tarnish pouches.

All jewelry will eventually tarnish, so 'Alohi Kai silver jewelry comes with a non-toxic coating to ward it off. After wearing, just clean with gentle soap and water, and dry with a soft cloth. After a while the coating may wear off; if it does we recommend a soft polishing cloth in addition to the soap and water.

And remember to care for your jewelry by keeping it away from harsh chemicals including chlorine, salt and beauty products. Also avoid knocking, scratching or otherwise damaging your jewelry while performing activities. Look after your jewelry and it will last generations!


About Honu (Hawaiian Green Turtles)

Honu are Hawaiian green turtles, and are a source of great joy for seasoned ocean lovers and newcomers alike.  For the ancient Hawaiians, they symbolised the navigator and mankind's eternal connection to the land and the sea. Some legends talk about how honu guided the Polynesians to Hawaii. Others talk of a honu and honu'ea (the similarly threatened hawksbill turtle) as magical beings and protectors, and their daughter Kauila as the protector of children.

These zen creatures have been swimming the sea for 150- 200 million years, but only when humans arrived did they become endangered.  By the 70's, they were so over-hunted they became critically endangered; by 1978 Hawaii state laws had been instituted to protect them, and populations are only now making a come-back - although they are still threatened by fishing and pollution.
The honu pendant measures 2″/50 mm x 50 mm

Meet The Designer

'Alohi Kai Jewelry is born from a love of the deep blue, and created by hand with sweat and fire and aloha in Hawaii. Each of our designs has a story to tell of underwater adventures, ocean hardship, survival and ingenuity, as well as our own journey of discovery and inspiration. Using ‘slow’ methods we hand carve our designs from underwater photos we take in clear Hawaiian waters. We do things by hand and design to be coveted, creating with attention to detail. And we work hard to use processes and materials that are sustainable so we don't harm the ocean we love; our jewelry represents thousands of hours not just observing wildlife, but clearing line, hooks, garbage and on occasion, freeing creatures caught up in it.
