The Kolohe story is just like our jewelry, self made and unique.
Kolohe Ladies + Ocha
Kolohe /ko'-lo'-he. adj. Hawaiian for Rascal. Kolohe means to be unique and different, to challenge norms and think outside of the box, to be unconventional.
The Kolohe story is just like our jewelry, self made and unique. Founder, Rose Wong, grew up in a home with 12 siblings. She got her first job at the age of 14. She funded herself through college. She secured a purchase order of 10,000 wave rings and then handmade each and every one of them. She's won pitch competitions and mentored entrepreneurs nationwide. She was honored at Hawaii's State Capitol for her entrepreneurial initiatives. She became Waikiki's youngest store owner, opening her first retail locations in one of Hawai'is most iconic resorts. Her latest project? Opening her second location during COVID-19 and launching a luxury, fine jewelry line. Her secret to success as a female and young entrepreneur? Jewelry and a good team alongside her.
What makes Kolohe different, is in fact our handmade jewelry, but it is also in our unique story of passion, poise and persistence.
When you wear our jewelry, we hope you feel confident, empowered, elevated and leveled up.
That is the lifestyle we stand behind.
We hope you'll stay around long enough to get to know us and our unique story, as we're also excited to hear yours.
Kolohe stands for more than jewelry, our dedication is to support women entrepreneurs and creatives in our community.
Read about our commitments and initiatives and let's bring women together over the one thing we all love: jewelry!
