What's Your Romantic Story?
Jewelry so often has sentimental value to
it. Just ask any woman about a piece of jewelry that she is wearing
and you are very likely to hear some fond memories
about where it came from, or who gave it, or what it means to her. You know that there is almost always a story behind any piece of
jewelry and this is one reason why Topaz encourages couples
to talk about what it is they really want to achieve when
they purchase a piece of finely crafted Hawaiian jewelry.
You might not know, but the very first Hawaiian bracelet
was not made in Hawaii. It was in fact created in Great
Britain, as a gift from Queen Victoria. “Hoomana’o Mau” means ‘A lasting remembrance’.
In 1887 Hawaiian Princess Liliu'okalani (the
future queen) traveled to England for Queen Victoria's
Silver Jubilee celebration. She received a gold bracelet,
with her Hawaiian name engraved on it in black enamel,
written in Old English
calligraphy. Queen Victoria had all of her jewelry created
in black as a sign of mourning for her beloved Prince Albert
(who died in 1862).
When the Princess returned to Hawaii, the
jewelry was so admired
that local goldsmiths began crafting similar bracelets.
Those black enamel engraved bracelets, still written in an
Old English style of lettering used in England during those
days, have now become a symbol of the Hawaiian islands. (If
you would like to read more about the story behind the
Hawaiian Heirloom Jewelry, take a look at the
Heirloom Bracelet Story here on our website).
The bracelets were thicker in width so they
could withstand the black enamel without melting the gold
from the bracelet as well. The thickness of the Hawaiian
Heirloom bracelets protects them from bending and
The people of Hawaii love to give
gifts, and you'll often see many such bracelets adorning the
arms of locals. They are often given with the name on
graduation, a birthday, or at the birth of a child. Those
living in Hawaii have more than gold bracelets, but
also rings and an occasional pendants.
You can buy "Hawaiian" gold bracelets on the
Internet, but you will never know what you are really
getting. The jewelry may note even come from Hawaii. But at
Maui Topaz Goldsmith and Gallery you can be assured that you
will receive gold bracelets that originated from Hawaii on
the island of Maui. Come in to our gallery and take a look

"A few years ago during our annual vacation to Maui, we were
in need of a jewelry repair. When another reputable jeweler
in Wailea was unable to complete that repair, they suggested
we try Topaz Goldsmith and Gallery in the Dolphin Plaza. Are
we ever glad they sent us there! Not only were we pleased
with the repair, we were also delighted to meet
knowledgeable and friendly owners, Nancy and David. Their
personal service is extraordinary. So now, every year we
stop in to see our charming friends, and usually end up
marveling at their new and innovative creations. The
Fairclough Family keeps us coming back for more. It is a
great 'business plan' to treat your customers as royalty!"

"I searched online for a Hawaii goldsmith because most
Hawaiian jewelry stores must send out to have custom work
done, including engraving and sizing -- and I was in a hurry. Happily, Maui
goldsmith David Fairclough was not only full of great creative
suggestions, he crafted a set of wedding rings for myself
and my bride that provided just the right touch of elegance
and simplicity. Best of all, he did it for me at an
affordable price! We couldn't be happier with our Hawaii
jewelry and David's excellent service at Topaz!"

"When we decided to get married Roxanne wanted to wear her
grandmother's ring. The ring was about 70 years old; but the
setting was pretty worn and the band was as thin as a
razorblade. It was comforting to discover David learned his
craft by working on antiques. Nancy put the ring under a
microscope and we saw all the wear and damage. It's a miracle
the diamonds were still there. When David finished the ring,
we were in awe of its beauty. It was pretty lackluster
before, but now the brilliance is like night and day.
Roxanne gets complimented on it all the time and it hasn't
the ring for Christmas and--WOW! I want to thank you for
the OUTstanding work, and beauty of the ring. It fits
perfectly, is very comfortable, and you interpreted me
and what I wanted exactly.
for me, people, and what you do shows in the work you
do. I cried for a good ten minutes after I opened the
ring, at the beauty of it, and I (almost) couldn't
believe that something so beautiful could belong to me.
