The ‘Kaikaina’ opihi ring is an open style sterling silver ring with a Hawaiian opihi shell, and a faceted moonstone gemstone.
Opihi shells are some of my favorite shells to find here on Hawai’i. I love how naturally minimal and delicate they look. Don’t let the cuteness of these shells fool you however- they are tenacious, strong little ones, that cling onto rocks along our Hawaiian coastlines, which serve to protect and nurture them. Locals sometimes reference their keiki as opihis, because of their similar desires to want to ‘stick’ to their parents, latching onto their source of safety and life, like an opihi to its rocky coastline.
Care Instructions: These are solid sterling silver rings. If needed, you may polish gently with a polishing cloth.
