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
