We seek to provide our customers with the highest level of quality jewelry, and ensure that all pieces are made in Hawai'i and the USA. Whether it's solid gold, 925 sterling silver or the richest of gold dipped pieces.
Keani Jewelry uses 14K Yellow Gold Filled and 14K Rose Gold Filled chains for our necklaces. These chains can be worn daily, get wet, without losing their lustrous and vibrant golden color. We source our gold chains from reputable manufacturers who can ensure high standards of quality in their gold chains.
Keani Jewelry uses Solid Sterling Silver 925 chain for all silver pieces. Sterling Silver is a lifetime metal, but will naturally oxidize over time when it is exposed to air. This jewelry is easy to clean with a polish cloth or a sonic cleaner but will stay shiny if kept in a pouch or box when it is not worn to reduce its exposure to air.
Pendants & Bangles
Our gold pendants and bracelets are 18K Heavy Gold Plated and plated in 60 micro inches of gold. Most mainstream department store jewelry is typically plated 10-40 micro inches. All of our plating occurs in the USA and we work with companies that have the highest standards for electromagnetic gold plating. Our Pearl bangles are made on Maui and use 14K gold fill, hand hammered for extra shine.
All silver pendants and bangles are made of Solid Sterling Silver 925.
Our gold rings are 18K Heavy Gold plated at 150 micro inches. We plate the most gold on rings because they are going to interact with the environment more than other pieces would. Our pearl ring styles are made on Maui with 14K gold fill unless otherwise specified.
All silver rings are made of Solid Sterling Silver 925.
We believe you should have to worry about getting your jewelry wet like when washing your hands or taking a shower. However, the best way to care for any jewelry, is to remove it when exercising, using lotions, harsh soaps or spray chemicals like sunscreen (reef-safe of course) and to avoid scratching the jewelry on hard surfaces. Jewelry should always be kept in a dry, safe place when not being worn.
Many of our designs are available in 14K and 18K Solid Gold for those who want "lifetime" or heirloom pieces. Solid Gold is more expensive but incredibly durable when making fine jewelry. Solid Gold is made to order and takes 2-4 weeks to complete. If you would like to inquire about having something made in Solid Gold, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote.
We only work with authentic, natural pearls that are not heat-treated or dyed. Our primary pearl types are Tahitian pearls, Edison pearls, and Golden South Sea Pearls. All pearls are hand selected by Keani herself to ensure the highest standards, color and shape for each unique piece. No two pearls are the same, so pearl pieces will always be one of a kind.
Pearls are the ocean's gemstones and should be treated with care. We recommend avoiding contact with chemicals found in perfumes, sunscreen or hot tubs when wearing your pearls. To avoid loosing your precious pearl, we recommend removing pearl rings when going for a dip in the ocean. Pearls can be wiped with a clean cloth after wearing and should be stored in a safe, dry place.
