A Sweet Deal on Kahili Creations’ New Collection

Get 30 percent off these pretty, precious pendants.



When it comes to treasure, you’re constantly on the hunt. You have your own metal detector to comb for buried treasure, Vegas is your all-time favorite vacay spot, and every time you see a rainbow, you can’t help but try to find the pot of gold at the end of it. (Those leprechauns have outsmarted you so far, but some day…)


We’re here to tell you to put down that Publisher’s Clearing House form. There are other ways to strike gold, like by making a rush for the new Sweet Metals collection by Kahili Creations. Designer Marcia Ricchiuti started small in 2008 with an Etsy shop, but today you can find her 24-karat-worthy designs in national retailer Tommy Bahama, as well as in Japan. This one-woman mine of gorgeous, fine jewelry digs out inspiration from her lovely Big Island home—it’s also evident in the beautiful Puna Views collections from last fall, which features necklaces made from scenic photographs of Puna.


Steel yourself for more tropical-inspired style with this Sweet Metals collection, released today. The precious pieces sport delicate pendants inspired by puka shell treasures that Ricchiuti has collected during her beachside strolls. Tying these sterling-silver, rose-gold-vermeil and yellow-gold-vermeil versions together are pretty cords in a bold-as-brass color scheme for a fun pop: Think bright mint, serene blue and vibrant red.


As if you needed a silver lining to this story, Ricchiuti is offering a special Lei Chic deal that’s just as precious as the collection: Get 30 percent off any Sweet Metals piece you buy online through Feb. 16 with the code LCSM25.


Now that is a copper-bottomed investment.
