I'm sort of feeding along the lines of what Spleen stated.
In Feb of 2004, Pebbles and I stayed at the HHV for 4-days prior to our cruise on the NCL Star. While at HHV, we were browsing around and Pebbles saw a really nice set of Black-Pearl earrings..from "Maui Divers" for about $1200. That was just a little too pricey for me.
Later on, as we were walking around, we came across the same pearls at the International Marketplace for $800. After some serious negotiations and a couple of walk-aways, we got them for $130...probably $100 too much after reading Spleen's comments...So don't get ripped-off either...
Perhaps a more accurate question would be: Spleen, is there any jewelry that is specific to Hawaii that folks should look for, that can't be gotten elsewhere, such as the St. Thomas, etc...??? Polished lava or something like that???
Or "jewelry" that folks should stay away from...such as polished lava or "Maui Divers" pearl earrings...
Spleen, Mahalo, as always... [img]http://smileys.******************/cat/36/36_1_32v.gif[/img]
