Royal Hawaiian Heritage Jewelry

In 1887, Queen Kapiolani and Princess Liliuokalani (the last Hawaiian monarch) attended Queen Victoria’s Jubilee in England, where the two were presented with gold bracelets upon which their names were cut out and enameled in black. They were so taken with the gifts that upon returning to Hawaii they reproduced such bracelets for the rest of the court. This forged a tradition of commemorating anniversaries, weddings, and birthdays with these handmade keepsakes. For 35 years, engravers of Royal Hawaiian Heritage Jewelry have incorporated symbols of Hawaiian culture, such as the plumeria and hibiscus, into these bracelets.
