Sometimes statement pieces come in the tiniest of packages, as exemplified by local label Imi Jewelry’s new Island Pride collection.
Designer Lauren Yamashita’s simplistic, natural aesthetic shines through in the form of delicate pendant necklaces (perfect for layering), chain bracelets, stackable rings and stud earrings featuring dainty silhouettes of O‘ahu, Maui, Kaua‘i and Big Island. Crafted from solid 14K yellow gold, each piece is handmade in her ʻAiea studio.
A departure from her usual geometric designs, the collection was inspired by Yamashita’s own love of effortless-yet-elegant jewelry and her desire for a tiny, everyday reminder of home, and proves that even the littlest of accessories can be big on aloha.
