Choices From Our Pono Collection




What can you get on your arm with our iconic Pono collection? This stylish set of bracelets illustrates our approach to Polynesian culture and heritage.


Here are some of the types of choices that customers make as they enjoy perusing our catalog and buying items.


Red Jade


This is a great one – there's a richness to the tone and sort of marbling of the stones that makes this a perfect gift, or a new addition to your nightstand.


“If you’re hesitant to try new things and want to fight the fear of competition then this is the right stone for you,” writes a gemologist at Gemstagram. “Also, if you want to quit or overcome bad addiction, this gemstone can offer you great support.”


Or you might just like the way that it looks!


Labradorite


This type of stone, originally mined in Canada, has an iridescent quality that makes individual pieces glow under the light.


It's a popular choice for our Pono bracelets that show off a design philosophy we explain elsewhere on the website.


Here’s how a gem person at Geology.com describes labradorite:


“Labradorite is a feldspar mineral of the plagioclase series that is most often found in mafic igneous rocks such as basalt, gabbro, and norite. It is also found in anorthosite, an igneous rock in which labradorite can be the most abundant mineral.”


Sandalwood


This one is lighter, and actually made of wood instead of stone! But it’s still popular in the Pono collection. Burnished to a fine rich grain, the sandalwood pieces complement the sterling silver bead in the middle quite well.


Obsidian


This is the blackest stone in the Pono collection - black as a Dragon's eye, we like to say!


For people who enjoy that depth of luster, this is a popular option.


Moonstone


Moonstone is sort of the opposite of the obsidian choice. It's an off-white milky stone that's very pale and seems sort of translucent, although it's actually rather opaque. An expert at the GIA gem encyclopedia describes the light reflection of moonstone this way:


“When light falls between these thin layers it is scattered producing the phenomenon called adularescence. Adularescence is the light that appears to billow across a gem. Other feldspar minerals can also show adularescence including labradorite and sanidine.”


Green Hematite


Here's another color choice for the Pono collection. This will make your friends “green” with envy!


Blue-Green Tiger Eye


This is the choice that highlights the tiger eye stone that we have used pretty prolifically throughout our catalog. One of the neat things about tiger eye is that it comes in so many colors – red, gold and blue-green among them.


Check out these bracelets for a stunning Polynesian jewelry choice! Happy shopping and aloha!
