Testimonials

Dane from Keaau, HI 

"I searched the web for Cypraea granulata. One of the images that came up was a lovely bracelet from Shells HawaiÊ»i. I contacted them and after a detailed discussion, I placed an order. 

We agreed to customize the bracelet design to fit the wrists of my wife and daughters. I received the order by mail soon afterwards and the uniqueness of each one is remarkable. You can feel the aloha in these pieces of wearable art.
 
Yes, I would love to shop there again. Service was professional and knowledgeable. And the prices were very reasonable!." ~Dane S, Keaau, HI.

Seth from Southfield, MI

"Janjira I want to thank you so much for your dedicated service. The Kahelalani shells from Kauai are absolutely gorgeous. I know that there are two to four species for Kahelalani shells. I will get a lifetime enjoyment out of them as I am with those from Niihau. From Niihau these shells are the purest with a luster like finish. As you move along oing southeast, these Kahelalani Shells become pale in color. I like them alot and these will go with any type of shells being strung on Lei's." ~Seth G, Southfield, MI.

Karen from Dunedin, FL

"I was looking on the internet at Hawaiian Sunrise Shells for something unique for my 35th wedding anniversary.  I came across the Shells Hawaii store on Etsy.com and also went directly to Janjira's website ShellsHawaii.com. The necklaces and bracelets on the website are truly unique and beautiful.

I contacted Janjira directly to custom design a lei necklace for me.  We went over various designs through email communication and Janjira provided me with a selection of sunrise shells within my budget.  I selected a necklace with a beautiful sunrise shell and a combination of kahelelani shells and momi shells.  Janjira was wonderful in helping me with color suggestions and was patient with me trying to visualize my custom order. She obviously takes pride in her jewelry pieces, which are one of a kind.  I love my necklace, and will hopefully be ordering a bracelet from her in the future.  Visit her website!   I now have a stunning 35th anniversary present!" ~Karen K. Dunedin, FL.

Joan B. from Columbia Falls, Montana

"I was in need of someone to repair my treasured shell bracelet that I gotten from one of my trips to Kauai. I found Janji Rarities through a search on the internet. I contacted Janjira to see if she would be able to repair my treasure for me. She asked for photos, and gave me a price to restring. I sent my bracelet to her, she emailed that she had received it, repaired it in record time, contacted me again with a beautiful photo of the completed repaired bracelet (completely restrung after having to make larger holes in each tiny shell), and let me know that it was on its way back to me. All this in record time! Service and workmanship and prices were outstanding!

I am so happy with the repair and the service and now the new friendship with Janjira. Would not hesitate to purchase any of the beautiful things she has on her website..in fact, I have my eyes on the sunrise shells...just need to decide which one!" ~Joan B. from Columbia Falls, Montana.

Georgeanne Lihue, Kauai

"I live in Lihue and bought a sunrise shell for my son's 19th birthday as he really wanted one before he went to a mainland college. The shell coloring is exceptionally beautiful, and it was packaged and mailed to me with extra care and features and that made the present all the more special (like the luggage tag!) When my son is home from college, he gets soooo many compliments from his local friends!! Wonderful shell, great price, and wonderful service. Thank you Janji Rarities!" ~Georgeanne, Lihue, Kauai.

Donna from Miami, FL

" just love my Kahelelani Shell Lei! . Having fair skin I was afraid it was not going to stand out but the burgundy and pink shells really makes it pop. It is very beautiful and very beautifully made. It was great working with Janjira, I really appreciate the time she took to make sure it was exactly what I wanted and that I was satisfied before it shipped, size and all. Mahalo!!!" ~ Donna from Miami, FL.

Seth from Southfield, Michigan

" When I bought a bunch of Leptothyra verruca (Kahelelani Shells), I purchased it from a dealer in Kauai. The shells are so very pretty because the colors are quite variable. I knew there was more of a solid and brightly colored ones available. I did some research online when I was indoors during the cold snowy weather. During my research, I happen to stumble upon www.shellshawaii.com by Janjira. As I saw her website, I noticed that she sells a bunch of real Kahelelani Shells from Niihau. No one else would sell such high quality tiny turbans with solid bright colors of pink, bright pink, brick red and some red ones. These shells are so amazing that I can display them with other micro-specimen shells due to their beautiful colors. With these bright colors and that its pollution free, the Tiki Gods help keep Niihau as a forbidden Island because they want to keep having these beautiful bright tiny turbans. To me, I don't blame them myself. That is why when I found Janjira's business, I can purchase shells from Niihau by enjoying them. The Kahelelani shells I bought from Janjira show so much bright solid colors that those shells stand out alone and by comparing those I have from Kauai and Maui. Now I have nearly a complete variety of these turbans. The specie's common name is called the Wart Turban. The Momi Shells are pretty and they do go well with the Kahelelani Shells. Thank you so much Janjira!!! You sure made my day come alive with these beauties and I will treasure them as long as I can." ~ Seth from Southfield, Michigan.

"Well, I was a first time buyer of a beautifully crafted piece of seashell jewellery from Janjira for my daughter’s upcoming birthday.

Chieko from Tokyo Japan

"I have purchased some beautiful pieces of seashell jewels and am very happy with what I own now. Janjira has just returned from her vacation when I placed my order. She has realized one of the three has different length than stated on her web shop that she fixed the length according to my wrist size without questions. I add the last piece later not to waste the chance to ship them all over to oversea. She covered for extra shipping fee and the jewelries arrived shortly in beautiful condition with the certificates. My wish lists for her shop is very long but I am looking forward to collect many more from her." ~Chieko S. Tokyo, Japan.

Jody from Wauwatosa, WI

"I have loved the little kahaleleani shells since my trip to Hawaii many years ago. A couple weeks ago while looking around the internet I came across Janjira's website. Her jewelry looked very nicely made and well priced. I sent her an email with a photo of a bracelet design I was looking for. She was helpful, quick to respond and able to do exactly what I was looking for. I bought two bracelets from Janjira and they arrived quickly and are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I haven't taken them off since they arrived. They are made with love and it shows. The color of the shells are wonderful and not a single imperfection. Not only would I feel comfortable ordering from her again, I have already sent her a request for a new design. Thank you so much my new friend! :)" ~Jody W. Wauwatosa, WI.

Phyllis from Hattiesburg, MS

"I was married in Kauai in 2013 and wanted to give my sister a special Christmas gift that would always remind her of our special time there. I selected a “Beautiful Sunrise Shell” necklace from Janjira’s website. She was wonderful to work with! She not only wrapped the necklace for my sister, she wrote a beautiful handwritten note and included it with her gift. My sister was so thrilled when she received the package and read the note that she couldn’t wait to open the necklace. The sunrise shell was beautiful and my sister loved it! Janjira also took the time to get back with me later and make sure that both my sister and I was happy with my purchase. Not very often do people take the time to care “after the sale” but Janjira went above and beyond to make sure that I was a satisfied customer. It is my pleasure to recommend her website to anyone reading this. She was great to work with and I will be back." ~Phyllis P. Hattiesburg, MS.

Teresa from Leicester, N.C.

"On a cold, winter day in western N.C., I came across Janjira’s awesome website and took that first step in placing an order. Once received, I immediately placed a second order. I’m now a privileged owner of two sets of her jewelry! Janjira is a true artist who strives for perfection with intricate detail in every piece. Her beautiful work parallels with her beautiful personality in that she takes the extra step in making sure each transaction is positive and personable. I wear very little jewelry and I’m very particular about seashells of which I’ve collected for many years. I’ve never owned such beautiful seashell jewelry until now. Each single seashell used for her jewelry making is treated with such care, having no chips, cracks, etc. For those out there ‘thinking’ about placing an order, you can put your trust in Janjira. I’m glad I did. “Thank you, Janjira, for sending your rays of sunshine from Kauai all the way to the mountains of N.C. You are truly special and I’m proud to wear your jewelry!" ~Teresa, Leicester, N.C.
