The revival of puka shell jewellery is well on its way. First popularised in Hawaii during the 1960s, and again resurfacing in the 1990s, Puka Shell¹ jewellery is an inexpensive accessory that can bring that easy surf style to any outfit.
What does Puka Shell Mean?
Puka is the Hawaiian word meaning ‘hole’, that can be seen occurring naturally on each shell, allowing ease of crafting into jewellery pieces such as rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and anklets.
Styling & How to Wear
Recently worn by Gigi Hadid¹, shell chokers are inexpensive, lightweight and easy to accessorise. The choker can be worn high in the neck for that 90s style feel, or wear slightly longer and layer with a gold or silver chain necklace.
Shell anklets and bracelets are also a popular choice, and with styles priced from just $10, it’s an affordable accessory option for you to love and wear for years to come.
Our natural shell anklets are embellished and handmade with cream or black cord and are comfy enough to wear year round, to the beach, and versatile enough for everyday wear and festival wear.
Accented with dainty gold, turquoise and pure white beads to complete the style, making each anklet easy to accessorise with a neutral or bright colour outfit.
Wear hair in natural sun kissed waves with volume and texture to complement your natural shell anklet.
Try pairing with a breezy flowing cotton top, or crochet jumper, and faded blue jeans for a casual look, or an oversized white collared shirt tucked into high waisted denim shorts for a relaxed easy style.
Sea shells are also on-trend for street and urban wear. Layering a simple and super fine gold necklace with your shell jewellery adds depth and interest to your street attire. Pair with a simple gold bead necklace for a simple beachy look.
