  • šŸšIntroducing our stunningāž°rareāž°and very unique Hawaiian Sunrise Shell Neckāž°Leis.Ā  SUNRISE SHELLS are unique in its original āž°natural color āž°NEVER stained or painted. They get their name because of their beautiful colorāž°echoing the sky in a magnificent Hawaii sunrise.Ā 
  • They are often found at first light on the beach, when they glow under the luminescent clouds. They were once found abundantly on the shores of several Hawaiian beaches on Kauai and the North Shoreāž° where my Uncle found many of these treasures.Ā  Howeverāž° due to their increased demand, they are typically found only at depths from around 10 to 30 feet where collectors must dive for them.

  • Usually, the scallops, known as Langfordā€™s Pectens, can fetch up to over $200.Ā  They become even more valuable when they have lush hints of green and blue. These shells of the same species are called ā€œMoonriseā€ due to their even less common, darker appearance. This tremendous range of color variation is based on different factors like at what ocean depths the creatures lived and what foods they may be been exposed to.
