Maui Divers marks 50th year

To celebrate its 50th year in business, Maui Divers Jewelry has launched a 50th anniversary Hawaiian Black Coral Collection of rings, earrings, pendants, bracelets and necklaces showcasing the underwater treasure.

Maui Divers began designing, manufacturing and selling Hawaiian black coral jewelry in 1959. The collection features 14 pieces, with additional selections to be added throughout the year. Inlay styles are set in 14-karat gold, some accented with diamonds. Prices range from $400 to $1,400.

The company also specializes in pearl, Hawaiian gold charms and pendants with Hawaii and Pacific Ocean theme marine life and heirloom jewelry of 14-karat gold and black enamel. Call 946-7979, (800) 253-6016 or visit www.mauidivers.com for store locations.


Misters help keep you cool

I don't know about the places where you live or work, but the air-conditioning at our offices is less than perfect: When it's cold outside, it's too cold; when it's hot on the street, it konks out, causing us to sweat more than a deadline.

My solution is to keep at my desk a calming, refreshing facial mister that I can spray into the air over my head or in direct shots to face and neck in the afternoon when the air-conditioners seem to sputter out.

Some portable reliables include:

» Shu Uemura's Depsea Water Facial Mist in fragrance-free or light fragrances of mint, rose, lavender and bergamot, $24 at Neiman Marcus.

» Malie organic facial tonics from Kauai that renew and rescue you from wilting, in aromatherapy blends of Jasmine Rose, Ginger Sweet Lime and Lilikoi lemongrass, at $29.50 to about $41, available online at http://www.malie.com, at the Moana Lani Spa at the Moana Surfrider and Na Ho'ola Spa at the Hyatt Regency.

» Aura Cacia Aromatherapy Mist in relaxing or energizing scents of cinnamon/ylang ylang, lavender, ginger mint or patchouli/sweet orange. It's $7.49 at Down to Earth and greener than turning on the air con.

If you're pinching pennies, filling a spritz bottle with water will also do the trick.
