Jeweler Rodkin has new special collection
Loree Rodkin has created a limited-edition collection designed exclusively for her Ala Moana Center boutique.
The collection comprises two Fleur de Lis pendants. One is crafted from yellow gold and features nine large sapphires surrounded by smaller sapphires and retails for $32,500. The second, featuring the same design, is crafted from sterling silver and set with cubic zirconias, for $5,000. Chains are sold separately, with several styles available.
Rodkin, whose edgy, nonconformist jewelry is worn by just about every Hollywood A-lister you could think of, is a frequent visitor to the islands and said of her stays, "There is so much beauty and color everywhere, it puts me in such a creative state of mind. This collection reflects that serenity."

A television special goes behind the scenes at the Easter Seals benefit event "Chefs du Jour," held last month at Aloha Tower Marketplace.
"Chefs du Jour: A Special Evening for Special Kids," airs at 7 tonight and 9 p.m. Sunday on KHNL/NBC and 7 p.m. Tuesday on KFVE.
The program covers events that lead up to the dinner event, including a "walk and taste" tour of Nalo Farms, a tasting of Waialua Chocolates and a cooking lesson with Art Smith, Oprah Winfrey's personal chef (pictured above), who headlined a list of 10 prominent chefs at "Chefs du Jour."
Also included are moments with the children and families who will benefit from the nearly $200,000 raised at the Aug. 11 event.
