This is not as simple to some as it is to others however, often too many choices are the dilemma.

Recently A White Orchid Wedding was featured on TNT’s Wedding Day and we were asked to find a unique island ring options for our winning wedding couple Tyra and Rich.  After researching several island inspired designs from local artists, we stumbled across the perfect match!  As we learned more about our couple it was clear that they were ocean lovers as well as avid surfers who were interested in carrying this theme into their celebration.  What better way than to see the ocean every day sparkling back at you?   Allow us to introduce you to Gary Mukai of Precision Goldsmiths Maui.  A local boy who shares his love of the sea created this stunning collection of ‘Maui Techno Wave Rings’ in his Wailuku studio.
