Mauna Kai Kuuipo- Gold Bangle|
Timeless and Traditional:
The origin of Hawaiian Bangle can be traced back to the 19th century. In 1887, Queen Victoria from England gave Hawaii’s Queen Lili’uokalani an engraved solid gold bangle, 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 Bangle have become a cherished Island keepsake.
Our Hawaiian Bangles are molded and plated in metal, and covered in gold foil with black, embossed design and protected with clear enamel. Our bangle measures 70mm dia. x 18mm w. (2-3/4” x 7/10”). Each Hawaiian bangle bangle is engraved on the inside of the bangle with “Mauna Kai by Island Heritage”.
In Hawaiian, the name Kuuipo means - my sweetheart.
