Selecting the perfect piece of jewelry for a special occasion is more than just a task, it's an art that combines personal style, occasion, and sentiment. We understand the significance of these moments and aim to guide you through the process of choosing jewelry that not only complements your style but also enhances it.
Understand the occasion
Before you begin your search, consider the nature of the special occasion. Is it a wedding, anniversary, birthday, or a milestone achievement? Different events call for different styles and types of jewelry.
If it's your wedding day, white pearls should be at the top of your list. For decades, white pearls have been an icon of elegance and they are the perfect accessory to an all-white wedding dress.
Rubies and Tahitian pearls are both symbols of romance and love. The fiery red color of a ruby symbolizes passion and what better way to set the mood then with these delectable gems? If you didn't know, Tahitian pearls represent everlasting love. Not only do they look beautiful, but the weight of a Tahitian pearl is sensual and soothing, and the bold look adds a healthy amount of drama.
Reflect your style
Your jewelry should be an expression of your personal style. For a touch of tropical allure, our plumeria earrings bring the lush flora of Hawai'i to life, or for a sparkling moment, our signature designs with diamonds inspired by Honu, ocean waves, traditional Hawaiian Heirloom are the right fit for you.
Consider the dress code
Matching your jewelry to the event's dress code is crucial. For formal occasions, opt for timeless pieces like pearls or diamonds, while more casual events may allow for playful and trendy choices such as plumerias or sealife designs.
The choice of metal can greatly impact the overall look of your jewelry. Consider factors like skin tone, personal preferences, and durability when choosing your metal. Yellow gold, with its warm and classic appeal, is a timeless choice for jewelry, while white gold, a blend of gold and other metals, exudes a modern and sophisticated charm, often chosen for its versatility. Rose gold, with its romantic pinkish hue, adds a touch of femininity and vintage flair to pieces. And silver, with its cool luster, complements various styles, making it a popular and affordable option for those who appreciate a sleek and contemporary aesthetic.
