Share their experience with us
Ming’s opened in 1940’s by Wook Moon and eventually had retail stores not only in Hawaii but in San Fransisco and New York.
Ming’s became popular among folks in the downtown area with a store here in Fort Street mall. Some of our clients themselves tell us their memories of Mr. Moon offering no-interest lay-away for modestly paid downtown secretaries and office workers to afford buying a piece every now and again.
Ming’s became a favorite staple in Hawaiian jewelry as it often featured beautiful Hawaiian and Asian cultural themes.
They often featured delicately carved ivory pieces, as well as sterling silver brooches, pearl and jade clusters, and gold bangles.
Popular themes includes the Peony, Lotus, Chrysanthemum, and Plum Flowers, the iconic “Bird & Plum” and others. Some are said to represent the four seasons, or represent the blending of different Asian cultures.
The last retail shop for Ming’s closed in 1999.
We are proud to carry a fine selection of Ming’s jewelry. Make one of these timeless treasures yours today.
