"Makai", as defined above, is a directional term in Hawai'i meaning "toward the sea", or "seaward." The Kate Alexandra Makai Collection embodies everything about our love for the Ocean. From our La Tortuga turtle shell cocktail rings, to the dainty Coastal Current wavy bar necklace and mini wavy bar earrings, to our White Cap and Channel stackable rings, each piece embodies a component of some of our favorite things about the "makai" side.
