If you are considering a move to Hawaii (and considering the incredible weather, friendly locals, gorgeous vistas and healthy economy, who isn’t?), you might want to take a look at Kapolei. This small city is often called the “Second City of Hawaii”, because it is second only to Honolulu in terms of growth, job availability, and overall success. While tourism does not play as big a role in Kapolei as it does in other areas of Hawaii, there are some big resorts in the area, including Disney’s largest and best resort in Hawaii. While the economic standards for local residents in many Hawaiian towns can be unfortunate when compared to the wealth and living standards of the tourist-oriented hotels and shops, here in Kapolei, the standard of living for residents is equal to that of the resorts and their visitors. In fact, Kapolei’s medial income of $70,000 is the second highest of any place in Hawaii—and is more than double the national median income.
Surprisingly, for such a well-to-do town, Kapolei’s jewelry offerings can be somewhat slim. Many shoppers head into downtown Honolulu to shop at top-shelf retailers such as Tiffany’s and Co, while others order all their jewelry online. In fact, Kapolei ranks top in the state in many high-tech areas, including high-speed Internet. But if you are looking for a made-in-Kapolei ring, or if you want to find a Kapolei jewelry store that can provide you with the same kind of high quality engagement rings and fine jewelry available in Honolulu, Los Angeles or New York, read on for the best Kapolei jewelry stores in each category.
Best Artisans: Kapolei, and Hawaii as a whole, is home to many artistic, creative types who come seeking the eternal sunshine and laid back lifestyle only Hawaii can offer. Artisan’s Garden, a beloved Kapolei jewelry store, collects the best work of these artisans, artists and jewelers and displays in a beautiful, refined collection that is perfect for everyone from the local resident looking to spice up her wardrobe, to the tourist looking for that perfect souvenir to bring back home. While traditional Hawaiian materials and motifs make a strong showing, you can also find beautiful, made-in-Kapolei jewelry items with a distinctly Southeast Asian or even Southwestern flair.
Best Do It Yourself: If you have a streak of the jewelry designer in you, and want to put together your own piece of jewelry, then Bead It is the Kapolei jewelry store for you. Thousands of beads, ranging from fun, inexpensive plastic to high quality Swarovski crystal, as well as wiring, fasteners and other supplies, plus expert help and advice, make this the best do it yourself jewelry store in Hawaii.
Best Chain: Zales Outlet shops may sometimes get a bad rap for not being the most friendly and welcoming of jewelry stores, but here in Kapolei, unsurprisingly, fans of Zales Outlet rave about the friendly, helpful and downright fun customer service. A nice selection of classic Zales jewelry pieces, including some that are out of stock elsewhere and not available online, as well as perks like free maintenance and cleanings, has everyone from little girls to grandmothers heading to Zales on every special occasion.
Best Fine Jewelry: If you are determined to find a Kapolei engagement ring, your best bet is going to be Michael’s Fine Jewelry, in Aiea. Michael’s is exactly the kind of friendly, trustworthy and helpful neighborhood jewelry shop every town in America needs. If you are a tourist looking for quick, reliable and trustworthy jewelry repairs, Michael’s is the best place in town for polishing, re-setting and even re-plating diamond rings.
