Jewelry Unique to Hawaii:  The Niihau Shell is used to make beautiful Lei Necklaces.  The whites, yellows, blues, and an occasional rare gold are stunning.  The shells are collected, sorted, finely drilled and painstakingly strung onto necklaces and chokers.

Although not unique to Kauai, a great variety of the exotic multi-hued Tahitian black pearl can be found set into rings, earrings, pendants, and necklaces.


K-MART and WAL-MART and Costco
The K-Mart and Wal-Mart and Costco on Kauai are located in the town of Lihue not far from the Airport. All 3 stores are full size.  Wal-Mart is by the red star.  K-Mart and Costco are by the red circle.
