When you want to explore jewelry creations from more than a few local artists, you just have to take a trip to Jewel of Paradise Memories in North Shore Kauai. Set in the heart of Hanalei, this charming boutique puts local jewelers’ artistry on center stage, making it a perfect spot to find gifts and souvenirs to cherish for a lifetime.
Although popular designer, Denny Wong, serves as a fan favorite, their shop carries works of art from many other artists as well. The top brands featured in their shop include Eva Stone, K. Mita Design, Vivid Jewels, and Pono Woodworks. The shop buyer, Cheryl, always keeps her ear to the ground in search of new designers to add to their store. Along with the shop manager, Courtney, she uses her Accredited Jewelry Professional certificate to only welcome the highest quality of works to their storefront.
As they search high and low for exceptionally sophisticated items, the Jewel of Paradise shop ends up with truly iconic one-of-a-kind pieces – and they have the price tag to match. But that’s not all they carry. In an effort to make their wares accessible to all, they have items at every price point, including under $50. Their affordable bead charms, for example, allow you to add to your bracelet at every visit to the island, creating a visual representation of your travels.
So, when you come by, you have the option to go all out in spoiling yourself and your loved ones. Or you can just pick up a stunning memento of your island adventures without breaking the bank. Either way, you’ll get a warm welcome as you step foot in the Jewel of Paradise shop plus plenty of help finding your perfect pieces.
