Description

Ni’ihau Earrings, Kahelelani Post. Crafted by master artisans from the island of Ni’ihau, Hawai’i.

DID YOU KNOW? Kahelelani – “the royal going” in Hawai’ian – are so named because they were once primarily worn by chiefs. As the smallest of the Niʻihau, these shells are the most difficult to collect, pierce, and string – making them the most precious.
