HAWAIIAN JEWELRY: 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. They received from the queen, a gold bracelet, with their 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). And that was a great love story.
When the Princess returned to Hawaii, the jewelry was so admired that it soon became a rage. 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 Hawaiian 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 disfigurement.
They are often given with the name on them at graduation, a birthday, or at the birth of a child. Those living in Hawaii have more than gold bracelets, but also matching rings, earrings and pendants.
You can buy “Hawaiian” gold bracelets on the Internet, but you will never know what you are really getting. The jewelry may not even come from Hawaii. But at Maui Repair & Design Studio you can be assured that you will receive gold bracelets that originate and are hand engraved. Come in to our gallery and take a look at our fine craftsmanship.
