About the gemstone

Sourced directly from the island by Hannah, Kauai’s seashells are beloved by the Hannah Blount Jewelry studio for their lush color palette and the nostalgia they invoke. A colorful oasis of natural beauty, Kauai's history is as rich as its biodiversity which is reflected in the fine points and hues of each shell. The simplistic silhouettes of these shells make way for hidden, intricate details while serving as a canvas for classic HBJ designs.
Origins: Kauai Island, Hawaii
Shells are made up of organic materials and should be treated with particular care: please avoid putting your shell jewelry on abrasive surfaces or knocking or dropping your piece. To keep your shell jewelry clean, use warm water and a cloth gently. Do not use a steam cleaner or ultrasonic cleaner. Avoid exposing your shell jewelry to chemicals, oils, soaps, etc. at all costs.


The Story of Ruthie B.

An homage to Hannah's childhood and the nostalgia of her fishing home, this collection comprises gritty nautical-inspired pieces. The collection is named after Hannah's father's fishing vessel, the Ruthie B, which was named after Hannah's mother. Ruthie B. celebrates the mystery and natural peculiarity of the ocean that painted the artist’s childhood. In their weathered island home, Hannah and her six siblings learned how to entertain themselves amidst the chaos that comes with such a large family. The dingy fishing paraphernalia that littered their backyard was a playground of inspiration: raw snapshots of beauty against the clean backdrop of their hometown of Nantucket. These familiar moments inspired her to create beauty of her own. Shop the full Ruthie B. Collection
