Out of the 7 million tourists who visit Hawaii every year, most spend their time in the bustle of Honolulu, the beauty of Oahu, or the surfer's paradise of Waikiki Beach. But if you are looking for a Hawaiian romantic vacation that is slightly off the beaten track, travel experts recommend Kailua Kona. The history of Kona-Kailua, on the Big Island of Hawaii, is a fantastic one worthy of the gorgeous island: it includes Hawaiian royalty, Christian missionaries and Captain James Cook. It is also the site of some of the world’s best place for snorkeling and diving. The stunning beaches range from pure white sand to mysterious and mystically beautiful black sand, as well as waterfalls, volcanoes, luaus, seahorse farm, whale and dolphin sightings, sea turtles and, of course, the world famous Kona coffee.
If you find yourself in Kailua Kona (lucky you!) with a significant other, relaxing and enjoying each other’s company in one of the most beautiful places on earth, you may find yourself wondering whether you can find a beautiful piece of made-in-Kailua Kona jewelry to give to your special someone to remember this once-in-a-lifetime trip. Many tourists, unfortunately, equate “Kailua Kona jewelry” with the cheaply made and overpriced Kailua Kona rings, bracelets and necklaces found at tourist-oriented shops near the airport, hotels and other touristy places. If you want quality jewelry, however (and especially if you are looking for a Kailua Kona engagement ring!) you have to find those small Kailua Kona jewelry stores that are off the beaten track, where the locals go for their own special occasions. If you are looking for high end pieces, and especially if you want Kailua Kona diamonds, it is even more important that you find a reputable, reliable jeweler to meet your needs.
But just because you are looking for quality jewelry, does not mean you are resigned to the same classic styles you could find in the continental United States. Kailua Kona jewelry should reflect the unique, laid-back nature of the island itself, as well as incorporate the gorgeous, saturated colorscape of Kailua Kona itself. Even Kailua Kona engagement rings embrace the mood of the island, with low profiles to suit the active local lifestyle, and bright colored gems to reflect the colors of sun, sand and surf. If you are looking for an engagement ring or another piece of Kailua Kona jewelry for someone who surfs, kayaks, or is involved in any other high-impact sports, the impeccable craftsmanship and sleek, low profiles of the Kailua Kona rings will be the perfect choice. To find that perfect Kailua Kona jewelry store, begin by asking your hotel concierge, tour guide, or any other local for a recommendation. In a small town like this one, everyone knows everyone, and chances are, if they don’t know a local jeweler who can help you, they can direct you to someone who does. Plus, when it’s time for the proposal, don’t forget to enlist the help of the hotel staff to make sure the moment is truly unforgettable!
