Aloha: All about Hawaiian Engagement Rings
Hawaiian engagement rings may be appropriate for those who feel a strong connection to this beautiful Island. Whether you're from Hawaii or just planning on honeymooning there, these rings may be the perfect pick for you and your woman.
Hawaiian heirloom jewelry dates back to the 19th century when Princess Lili'uokalani and Queen Kapi'olani attended an event in England where Queen Victoria presented them with gold bracelets engraved with their names in black, antique lettering. The Princess loved the bracelet so much that she had her Hawaiian jewelers make similar pieces for her.
A trend was born on the island, and the heirloom style grew in popularity. The trend grew to include pendants, rings, earrings, etc. and was futher embellished by local artisans with engravings of Hawaiian flowers, designs, and personalized inscriptions. They may be studded with gemstones and inlaid with attractive metals. Heirloom rings are typically wide and made of yellow and white gold. There are many jewelers in Hawaii who make rings by hand versus most engagement rings which are manufactured in a nameless factory. With Hawaiian engagement rings, men and women typically wear matching rings....I know... I know... this isn't for everyone. The man's band is wider than the woman's for a more masculine look.
Also popular in Hawaii are gold rings featuring designs of flowers such as roses, and orchids and studded with gemstones and inlaid with various metals.
