Laser cut and inlayed with hypoallergenic surgical steel or gold-plated surgical steel, 1.5 inches long. Each come in a metallic gold box decorated with washi tape.
This is a really unique set, running the border between the brown and white of an almost burled piece of curly koa, the design is simple so the grain can really sing. Just a gentle nod to it's origins we include the Hawai'i island chain on the necklace.
Being a wood product there will be natural variation in shade and gradient with striations or other natural markings of the wood.
Koa has a wide range of colors, variation and chatoyancy ranging from $45-200/bdft. When the tree starts buckling under it's own weight we get visual undulation called "chatoyancy" from the compressed cellular structures. It's color runs the full range from chocolate through the red tones, sometimes with yellow streaks. The newest growth can be a light white color and often is overlooked. Our finishing process restructures and strengthens the otherwise soft white grain for your enjoyment.
