In an era when many Hawaiian vacation spots have gone corporate, with high-rise resorts, gleaming tourist shopping centers, and extensions of every famous eatery available in town, Wailuku offers a breath of fresh air. The small Maui town still has that small-town feel that is at once classically American and at the same time, distinctly Hawaiian. Located conveniently near the Kahulai Airport, and home to local landmarks like Bailey House, and the Iao Valley State Park, travelers looking for a Hawaiian experience that is off the beaten track often end up in Wailuku. Your accommodation options are limited to friendly, rustic hostels, eateries are casual, cheap and cater to locals, and the main streets are still full of the kind of locally-owned stores and artisan shops that Hawaii was once famous for. It's the Hawaii experience most tourists, staying at a Sheraton on the beach in Honolulu, will never even know exists.
One of the most famous of these family businesses is GK Mukai Studios, a Wailuku jewelry store that has earned a reputation as far away as New York for its high quality, innovative designs. If you are expecting Wailuku rings to look simple and rustic, the grand opulence of a Mukai Studios ring will surprise you. Proud winner of the Hawaii Jewelers Association Designer of the Year award, GK Mukai is one of the best places to find Wailuku jewelry that is inspired by the island but would look just as good in California, New York, Tokyo, or beyond.
You may not think of sleepy Wailuku as an engagement ring shopping hotspot, but if you are looking for a truly unique (and truly Hawaiian) way to celebrate your engagement, you can't do better than a GK Mukai studio engagement ring. Using the best Wailuku diamonds, as well as a dazzling array of colored gemstones, the designers make sure every piece is unique, inspired by something the couple loves. One ring sets small blue sapphires into a wave of a channel setting inspired by the famous Hawaiian surf, another features beautiful diamonds set into an abstract version of the famous Hawaiian hibiscus flower. In addition to the classic stones such as diamonds, sapphires and emeralds, Wailuku engagement rings can also feature more unusual stones, such as morganite and alexandrite. One especially eye-catching ring features a rare star sapphire, which is said to represent Maui, a traditional Hawaiian god. If you are looking for a way to bring the essence of Hawaii home with you in a piece of Wailuku jewelry, there is simply no better way.
