Sunrise shells are an extremely rare and sacred shell, containing every color of the spectrum, but usually occur in yellow, orange, and red. They are one of the most treasured and colorful shell found on the beaches of Hawaii. These shells were once the exclusive property of the Hawaiian royalty, truly a wondrous jewel of the sea.
They get their name Sunrise shells because of their beautiful color, echoing the sky in a magnificent Hawaii sunrise. They are often found at first light on the beach, when they glow under the luminescent clouds. They range in size from a dime to a silver dollar. Sunrises are a rare delight and offer their wearers protection and power that goes back thousands of years in Hawaii's rich history.

***Keshi pearls – also known as poppy seed pearls or seed pearls, as keshi means poppy seed in Japanese – may result from either freshwater or saltwater pearls. Keshi pearls are usually quite small in size, and as they do not have nuclei – upon which the shape of a pearl is usually determined – there is usually a large degree of variance in the shape of keshi pearls.
Keshi pearls also come in a variety of different colors and shades, and are known for their luster and uncommon orient. This is a result of their composition consisting of solid nacre. As the nucleus is eventually expelled by the oyster before the pearl is actually formed, the keshi pearl consists entirely of nacre
