Hoshi no Suna Necklace

kr 2 200

A star-shaped sand grain necklace for you adventurous wayfarers.

Stars have served as navigational guides since the dawn of time, pointing out paths and directions. Leading pathfinders to the desired destination and not astray.

The star can symbolize a goal or a desired direction. Aim for the stars, or wear a shooting star!

A star-shaped grain of sand from Okinawa, Japan. The grain is a foraminifer, a remnant of a single-celled organism found in some warm oceans.

The grain lay on a beach as starry as the Milky Way. A legend says that the tiny stars are the result of a romance between the most iconic navigational stars – the North Star and the Southern Cross.

Hoshi no Suna is Japanese for star sand.

Fall in love with the piece for what it is–an exact model of a one-in-a-million grain of sand. It’s meticulously hand-selected, x-rayed at a research facility, and finally magnified and shaped in silver. Every intrinsic detail is intact.

Wear it:

  • as a reminder of the strength and beauty found in the smallest things in life
  • to connect to the beach, ocean, and nature
  • for a feeling of oneness with whatever you associate with the shape or the grain of sand

P.S. Elevate your style by pairing it with pieces from the AKIN collection, which features sands from all over the world, or our unisex necklaces in the GRAINS collection

  • After use, gently wipe every piece with a soft cloth to remove residue of makeup or oils from your skin, to keep the pieces from discoloring.
  • If/when your jewelry needs polishing, use a polishing cloth or silver dip. If you use silver dip, finish by drying with a polishing cloth – it helps keep your jewelry beautiful longer.
  • When not wearing your jewelry, store it in a jewelry box, a soft pouch, or an airtight bag. Please keep it away from sunlight and humid spaces like the bathroom.
  • Arrange chains in loop shapes to avoid tangle and damage. 
  • Never force or pull chains. 
  • Use your good judgment of when to wear or not wear jewelry. And to never wear jewelry in natural hot springs, as found in volcanic areas. 
  • Finally, wear your jewelry with attitude and pride!


Pro tip!
Look under the soft insert of the jewelry box your OUAW jewelry came in to find a small ziplock bag. If you store your silver jewelry in it when not in use, it will not tarnish as quickly. Not as fancy  – but practical!
