Local Color Boutique

One of my favorite clothing and jewelry boutiques in Key West is Local Color.  Their unique jewelry lines reflect the Keys with natural stones, sea glass, gemstones from the Caribbean, and beautiful shells. 

They also have linen and soft cotton clothing in casual and more formal styles.

Key West Jewelry

Local Color carries several fabulous lines of jewelry.  My 3 favorites are Larimar, Eye of the Shiva, and Conch.  All the jewelry is made with sterling silver so you’ll be pleased with the quality and pricing.

Larimar is the only gemstone found in the Caribbean.  It is mined from an extinct volcano in the Dominican Republic.  The gemstone comes in variations of blues from baby blue to deep blue greens mimicking the colors of the Caribbean waters and skies.  You’ll find a great jewelry selection at Local Color of pendants, bracelets, earrings, and rings with Larimar set in sterling silver.

Eye of the Shiva jewelry is made with a beautiful spiral lined shell that is stunning.  The Shiva Eye shell is the small trap door that protects the Turban Shell sea snail.  After the snail dies, this protective door naturally drops off.  It was named Eye of the Shiva after the third eye of a great Hindu god.  The Eye of Shiva shell is made into stunning pendants, earrings, bracelets, and rings.  The prices vary depending on size and jewelry design.

Conchs are native inhabitants of Key West. They were endangered for many years but are now protected and making a come back.  The Conch jewelry uses the natural pink hues from inside the conch shell.  Conch shells that are no longer used by the conch sea snail are used for jewelry.

Boutique Clothing

Hard Tail clothing is one of the brands carried by Local Color.  The clothing line is light, airy and very comfortable to wear.  Another brand is Luna Luz clothing line with light jersey cotton dresses, shirts, skirts, and more.  Designed in Spain but made in the USA, Luna Luz specializes in soft, travel friendly clothing with fun styles.

Local Color Locations

Local Color has four stores in Key West under different names. My recommendation is based on both the unique style and quality of the jewelry and clothes and the friendly and helpful people at Local Color.

Comments about: Local Color Boutique

I have a very good friend that shops here (Barbara P) and have always loved everything.  She told me this was where she shopped.  If you have a catalog or get your clothes on line please let me know.  Thank you
