Vintage Ming's of Honolulu, Hawaii Jade Ring in 14K Plum Tree Setting
A favorite quote is “For those who understand, no explanation is needed. For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.” That perfectly sums up the allure, the culture, of Ming's Jewelry.
Ming's Jewelers was a Honolulu icon for over 30 years, with the last store closing in 1999. Jade, Pearl, and mixed-gem jewelry designed by Wook Moon, and pieces of vintage Ming's jewelry, are highly prized for their quality and enduring timelessness. To have Ming's in your collection speaks volumes about your appreciation for style that is never out-of-date.
