Riches Kahala has been celebrating its 26th anniversary and the holiday season with a series of trunk shows featuring local jewelry designers.

On Dec. 2, Riches owner Lo Kaimuloa welcomed a half dozen designers—Kimberly Le, Two Hands, LK Atelier, Beachcomber Designs, Paradisus and Hands in the Sand—for a night of shopping, and will host a Misa trunk show from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 8, with a 10 percent discount on jewelry designs by Los Angeles-based Misa Hama­moto, who draws inspiration for her handcrafted jewelry from her Hawaii and Micronesia roots and an affinity for nature.

The holiday event will feature metal jewelry with a mix of precious and semiprecious gemstones gleaned from Hama­moto's world travels.

For more information, call Riches at 737-3303.

Born in Thailand and raised in Hawaii, Goldstein creates a range of designs for day to evening, and beach to city wear. With a yin-yang dynamic, Greenwell says her personal style is more "city," and Goldstein's is "beach." It all works out.
