Timeless and Traditional:
The origin of Hawaiian Bracelets can be traced back to the 19th century. In 1887, Queen Victoria from England gave Hawaii’s Queen Lili’uokalani an engraved solid gold bracelet, which became Lili’uokalani’s most favorite jewel. Overtime the beautiful English carvings were reproduced incorporating different island designs such as tropical flowers, ferns and leaves, and sometimes engraved with names and phrases. Hawaiian Bracelets have become a cherished Island keepsake.
Our Hawaiian Bracelets are molded and plated in metal, and covered in gold foil with black, embossed design and protected with clear enamel. Our bracelet measures 70mm dia. x 18mm w. (2-3/4” x 7/10”). Each Hawaiian bangle bracelet is engraved on the inside of the bracelet with “Mauna Kai by Island Heritage”.
In Hawaiian, the name Kuuipo means - my sweetheart.
