Majestic humpback whales visit Hawai'i every year from November through May. Going on a whale watch from Ma’alaea Harbor is an iconic Maui experience. Seeing the giant mammals breach out of the bright blue ocean connects us to the joy and happiness in life. For this earring design, blue larimar gemstones are expertly carved into shape and inlaid in smooth polished sterling silver.

Larimar is a very rare semi precious gemstone found only in one location in the world: the Dominican Republic. The unique azure blue gem is formed in lava tubes when hot gases push crystallized minerals up through volcanic tubes. The name Larimar was created by Dominican Miguel Mendez, combining his daughter’s name Larissa and the Spanish word for sea, mar. Larimar is considered a healing stone, especially for speech and communication.
