Island of Big Island

Often called “the best little jewelry store on the Kona Coast,” Mountain Gold Jewelers in Kawaihae is a different kind of jewelry experience. When you walk into the store, you also enter the design studio of owner and master goldsmith Moses Thrasher. Watching him at work, you catch a close-up and personal glimpse into the fascinating world of jewelry craft. Specializing in diamonds, opals, colored gems and pearls of all kinds, Mr. Thrasher can design and make anything you can imagine. He has been a goldsmith for forty years, working comfortably in 14K, 18K and platinum, and is also exceptionally talented in intricate jewelry repair and alteration. Open Monday-Friday 11:30am to 7:30pm and Saturday from 12pm to 6pm in the Kawaihae Harbor Center (upper level).
