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
Care
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 Vanity

Celebrating the often discouraged act of adorning oneself, the Vanity collection combines glamour with grit, and naturalistic curiosities with industrial elements. Growing up in a world that said a desire to be beautiful was vain, Hannah learned through time and her artwork that connecting to beauty is an ultimate form of empowerment. The one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces of the Vanity collection incorporate Hannah’s love of atypical gemstones and prong settings. The gemstones found in Vanity are hand-selected for their obvious beauty, but more often for what makes them more obscure: vibrancy in unexpected hues, garish silhouettes, and striking inclusions that deem them traditionally flawed. But it is through their perfect imperfections that Hannah is given a canvas to celebrate her love of making, design, beauty, and unbridled creativity. Contrasting delicacy with severity and subtlety with singularity, the Vanity collection is a love story to femininity and ardent self-love. Shop the full Vanity Collection
