La Cle Jewelry

Disclosure: The necklaces below were received free of charge for review purposes.

Look good, feel good, do good is the mission of La Cle Jewelry and their goal is to fulfill their mission with one single piece of jewelry…the key necklace.  A key symbolizes opportunities, freedom, responsibility, and more.

Look good:  There are 15 different color key necklaces to choose from and each color has its own meaning.  For instance, white represents original & authentic.  There are also different types of keys: original, double decker, dipped, glitter, limited edition, or your own customized key where you can choose stamped personalized word(s) to add to your key.  Wear the key and embrace its meaning.

Feel good:  The keys serve as a reminder to focus on the positives in life.

Do good:  Over time, the color of your key will fade and you will be left with a unique vintage key, which symbolizes the positive energy you have absorbed using your key words.  Post your picture with #NAKEDKEY on social media and share what your key means to you.  La Cle Jewelry will then make a donation in your honor to a charity of your choice.

It was a beautiful day and the weather was perfect to be outdoors so we were happy to get seated on the open lanai, which sits right along Kalakaua Avenue, with a view of Waikiki Beach. 


The food was delicious and the kids’ meals each came with a Frisbee.  That was a nice surprise for them.  We also had the honor of meeting Chef Ronnie 

Seared Island Ahi Tuna / Keiki Hawaiian Plate
Keiki Chicken Strips / Parmesan Crusted Chicken Linguine
Hawaiian Ahi Poke / Taro Bread with Banana Butter Spread / Island Sorbet with Fresh Kula Strawberries


We went home with these great beer glass and fun kids’ smoothie cup souvenirs.



The following pictures aren’t very clear since I took them with my phone, but after dinner we walked across the street to the beach so the boys could play with their Frisbees.  The sunset was so beautiful and we stayed to watch the Hilton Hawaiian Village fireworks. 


Tiki's has a HAPPY HOUR every day from 2pm to 5 pm and is open daily from 10am to midnight.  Wednesdays are Wine Down Wednesdays, ALL bottles and glasses of wine are HALF OFF.  They also have live music every night and three hours of free valet parking.
