Welcome to Hawaii Jewelers Association!

The Hawaii Jewelers Association logo has been updated. The design contest for the logo closed on October 31st and your Board of Directors voted on November 11th to adopt a new logo from the 6 submissions (and also considered keeping the old logo).

The new logo is really an update to the logo the HJA has used since its founding in 1949. The colors are now more in keeping with the Hawaiian Royal Coat of Arms and the text font has been replaced with a more contemporary one. And a diamond was added to help the public identify our logo with jewelry.

The 2020 Membership stickers will use this updated logo. We will be making digital copies of the logo available to members for use on their websites and promotional materials.

Mahalo to all of the HJA members who submitted entries!

Congratulations to our 2019 Hawaii Jewelers Association Designer of the Year winner,  Chira Duval-Arnould, Aqua Gems for her "Pearl Change" design piece.


Our combined efforts to fight crime makes a difference!

We are a non-profit organization for Hawaii’s jewelry industry that have teamed up with HPD and the community to fight jewelry crimes. We are constantly notified by the community, jewelers, police, and referred to victims of incidents in Hawaii. I will then create an E-blast we call a "security alert" that goes out to our members of jewelers, jewelry buyers, and various depts within HPD. In many cases, if the "jewelry buyers" of jewelry see the item are stolen from our Security Alert, they will call police and Hawaii Jewelers Association as well as save any camera footage of person attempting to sell jewelry. These combined efforts have helped with arrest and/or retrieval of stolen items!

If you have been a victim of jewelry theft and would like me create an E-blast a Security Alert of your situation. Email me at admin@hawaiijewelersassociation.com with the following..

  • date, time and location of incident
  • description of jewelry items (pictures are always helpful)
  • description of perpetrators
  • police report # with the police officer in charge of your case

If you or a jeweler you know is in the impact area of a natural disaster, our hearts go out to you!

Most businesses on Kauai and the Big Island of Hawaii are still open for business despite the floods and the on-going eruptions. Many need our support so that they can continue to serve their customers on their islands and beyond. Besides the loss of sales profits, these jewelers now need to recover the loss of supplies and tools. Please help us in our efforts to assist our fellow jewelry industry members.

We kindly ask you to support by contributing to our GoFundMe campaign: Hawaii Jewelers Unite
