Man Hawaiian Jewelry
Q: My wife and I used to live in Hawaii (we met and were married there).
Our twentieth wedding anniversary is coming up and my wife has
not-so-subtley mentioned that she would like to have a Hawaiian
wedding band to commemorate the occasion. To tell the truth, I don't
remember what they look like or anything much about them.
I did see a source on the internet for the rings but I
need to pick a name or something to put on the ring. Do I use her
name or an endearment (a Hawaiian word?) or what?
What is the traditional thing to do? Can you give me some
A:Try Violet's Fine Hawaiian Heirloom Jewelry Company, they guarantee to "beat anybody's price for the identical item" I don't know them but looked in the yellow pages and they stood out. I bought my daughter some stuff from Royal Hawaiian Heritage Jewelry. My wife (and her money) loves this place. Hawaiian Heritage Jewellry comes in all kine shapes and sizes - I think the rings are the most popular, but you can get pendants (of various kinds) earrings, bracelets, and who knows, maybe nose rings and the like... The designs are traditional (well, traditional within this format) and feature names enamelled into the gold (or silver) - most people get their Hawaiian names (given, or translated) put on them... Lots of pieces are done with "Kuuipo" - Sweetheart... For those of us away from Hawaii, finding someone with a ring (or pendant) is kind of fun - you immediately assume some kind of local spirit!
