Destiny Forever, the crystal bracelet company founded and run by retired MMA champ Enson Inoue, is destined for a new location in Kaka`ako. It’s the first brick-and-mortar storefront for Inoue, who previously had rented space for quarterly pop-ups.
Inoue handcrafts crystal bracelets using gems he sources himself globally on buying trips. Believers say the energy of different gems provides them support in what they need; for example, health, love, luck, protection, and peace.
The store, at 1019 Waimanu Street, opens November 28. It will be open full time until December 16, when Inoue, a former Manoa native, returns home to Japan.
Inoue says Destiny Forever’s winter hours are structured as such:
November 28 to December 4 – restrings only
December 5 to December 16 – custom orders (new bracelets)
Hours are 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. daily during these dates
Inoue lives in Japan and has historically returned to Oahu about four times a year to sell his wares. He is hoping to keep the store open year-round with the help of Honolulu-based staff, but hasn’t worked out that schedule yet.
Office manager SJ McCann says they’re excited to offer customers a selection of new stones this winter, such as “high-grade Super Seven, Titan Rutile, Lybian Desert Glass, Black Opal, Tektike, Pietersite, and many more.” He also has a fresh selection of other decorative gems and crystal trees.
Destiny Forever is now at:
